Addressing the ceremony held at the Grand Hyatt, Georgetown University president John J DeGioia said: “When we live our lives at the frontiers, we work at the forefront of the possible. We seek out new learning and knowledge, new ways of leading and being, new ways of understanding others and ourselves. We embrace the tensions and ambiguities created by the unexplored to address the greatest challenges before us.”
He added: “We are grateful for all that you have already accomplished. And we are hopeful for the work you will do ... and the lives you will touch, for the promise each of you brings into the world.”
