Provost Cruz's message to the Class of 2015

"All of us who have watched you along this path—family, friends, faculty, staff, and administrators—are proud to have been a part of your journey to success.

We may think of ourselves as teachers, but it is all of you who teach us, day after day, the greatest lessons in perseverance, integrity, and courage."
