Dean Carlson, Interim Provost Maziar, family and friends, it’s great to be with you.  Graduates of the class of 2022, after two years of unprecedented challenges, you did it, and this is your day.

And then tomorrow to be welcomed into this community with an honorary degree, which I understand should not be confused with your hard earned degrees.…
