Sometimes big statements are best made in small ways.
That was the thinking behind a new Commencement tradition begun this year at
Wilkinson College of Humanities and Social Sciences
. Traditionally, the college gave graduates a medal to wear over their graduation robes as a reminder that they are forever part of the Wilkinson family. This year Patrick Fuery, Ph.D., dean of Wilkinson College, thought the tradition could be enhanced and asked his staff to come up with a stronger connection to the Wilkinson mission of offering “programs that change lives and change the world.”
