Dean Scott AdlerTo the fall graduates: My sincerest congratulations to all of you who are receiving master’s and doctoral degrees this month. 

Earning an advanced degree has been particularly challenging during the last two years, and I know you have all worked extremely hard. Your perseverance and achievements are inspiring, and I know that your colleagues, families and friends are immensely proud of what you’ve accomplished. We are honored to count you among our esteemed graduates.

As you transition into being a Forever Buff, my hope is that you will maintain your spirit of curiosity, use your talents of inquiry and discovery, and put to use all your newly honed skills as you pursue even greater accomplishments. 

On behalf of the Graduate School and the University of Colorado Boulder, thank you for your contributions to our campus community and heartfelt congratulations on your new degree.
