“Thank you for what you have done so far, but you have raised my expectations through your successes. The future of the world depends on you! It is now time for commencement of that brighter future. Congratulations to the Class of 2015!”


2015 Commencement Address Speaker – Ken Burns

Ken Burns, director and producer of some of the most acclaimed historical documentaries ever made, has been selected to give the 2015 Commencement address at Washington University in St. Louis in May. Burns will be receiving an honorary doctor of humanities degree.
