Submitting for Student Commencement Speaker Consideration

Graduates from the Online and Chicago campuses who wish to be considered to deliver the student commencement speech are invited to submit a draft of a speech that focuses on how your Adler University experience has influenced you in your understanding of what it means to be socially responsible in your chosen professional field.

The Adler Commencement Speaker Committee will review submissions. As your fellow graduates will represent various clinical and non-clinical degrees, please make your speech inclusive and address the broad diversity of disciplines and perspectives held by the graduating class.
Only one 2020-2021 graduate will be considered for Student Commencement Speaker. 

Proposed speeches are due by Friday, September 24 at 2pm PT/ 4pm CT.

The selected speaker will be announced the week of October 4.
