President Steenkamp: The world is ready for our grads

From the hugs, handshakes and high-fives to hearing how proud they are of their journeys, connecting with students is what makes this day one of my favourites.

Our grads are leaving, ready to take on the world. Ready to adapt to change and see the opportunities that shape it. Ready to stay focused on big goals and basic values — on humanity, justice and equity — in a world where the landscape is constantly shifting. 

And this world, with its profound challenges and its glimmers of hope, is more than ready for our grads.

Congratulations Spring 2023 grads and to everyone who supported them along the way!
