Report of CAC's Activities For This Year

The Committee on Commencement and Academic Ceremonies met twice this year. In the Fall semester, the Committee focused mainly on one piece of business: the 2008 University-wide commencement speaker. The Committee forwarded suggestions for Commencement Speakers Cto the President's Office, which were added to the existing list maintained by the Office of Relationship Management and University Events. The Committee held a second meeting on April 7, 2008 to advise the Faculty Council and Office of the President on policy matters related to Honors Day and 2008 Commencement Exercises. In addition to this work the Chair of the Committee served as University Marshal in the 2008 Honors Day ceremony.
