More than 600 students will receive diplomas at Carroll University’s Commencement ceremony on Sunday, May 13, 2012. The graduates include about 550 expected to earn bachelor’s degrees, 45 expected to earn master’s degrees and 45 Doctor of Physical Therapy degrees.
Nearly 4,500 parents and guests will attend Carroll's traditional outdoor ceremony, marked by bagpipers and carillon music, which will begin at 1 p.m. on the lawn in front of Main Hall on East Avenue. It will be preceded by a baccalaureate ceremony at 10 a.m. in the auditorium of Shattuck Music Center on East Avenue at Wright Street.
The keynote speaker will be Dr. Howard Fuller, a 1962 Carroll graduate and founder/director of the Institute for the Transformation of Learning at Marquette University. He is nationally known for his support of fundamental educational reform, and in 2011, he was recognized by “Forbes Magazine” as one of the top seven educators in the world.
