Students, their families, friends and CMCI faculty gathered last week to celebrate graduating. At CMCI's Recognition Ceremony May 12, 2023, nearly 700 students crossed the stage, accepted their diplomas and became alumni. In total, more than 800 bachelors, master’s and doctoral students completed their degrees.

“Your time here—in and outside of the classroom—has given you the means to think, innovate, create and lead our world into new and exciting directions,” said Lori Bergen, founding dean of CMCI. “You are well prepared to tackle the next challenges you encounter as professional communicators, information scientists, entrepreneurs, scholars, journalists and global citizens, and that gives me great hope for our future.”
