About 8,700 students received their undergraduate and graduate degrees during the May 2019 ceremony, hearing U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi give a Commencement address encouraging them to embrace the idealistic spirit of the nation’s founders and take bold action to ensure the future of democracy. Other speakers included Maria Jose Lozano Sanabria, the undergraduate speaker, and Alexis “Lexi” Adsit, the graduate speaker.
