three people at cu graduationOn May 12th, the International Affairs Program honored 195 candidates for graduation during commencement in the Glenn Miller Ballroom.

Student speaker Catharine Helmers urged her peers to “challenge ignorance” and be “unflinchingly certain” in their abilities to make changes for the better. Director Tom Zeiler encouraged graduates to live in a manner consistent with the values of the program’s motto – be inspired, be involved, be international.

After the ceremony, family, friends and faculty mingled at the reception, celebrating the newly minted alums as they end one chapter of their lives and start another. Congratulations graduates, and we invite you to stay connected with the program through alum events and communications!
