Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) will deliver the keynote address at Morgan State University’s sixth annual December commencement.
The recently re-elected Warren, one of several distinguished citizens to be awarded an honorary doctorate from the historically Black school, will address a diverse graduating class of nearly 500 students for the Dec. 14 commencement, slated for 9:30 a.m.
Other honorees include Clara Adams, Morgan alumna and former member of the University administration, and Eugene DeLoatch, the founding dean of Morgan’s Clarence M. Mitchell Jr. School of Engineering.
“At Morgan, we strive to expose our students to an array of thought leaders by bringing some of the most diverse and powerful voices to campus,” said MSU President David Wilson. “Sen. Elizabeth Warren is one of the most progressive entities on the political landscape, and what she has to offer in terms of her experiences and leadership is something that is sure to benefit our students as they leave this institution and begin the journey to become leaders in their own right.”
