  • ✪ UMUC Commencement: Saturday Morning Ceremony - May 12, 2018


>> And now, ladies and gentlemen, please welcome members of the University of Maryland University College faculty. [ Music ] Ladies and gentlemen, please rise to welcome our platform party, led by University of Maryland University College president, Javier Miyares, senior vice-president and chief academic officer, Dr. Alan Drimmer, and the president of the Maryland senate, the Honorable Thomas V. "Mike: Miller, Jr. [ Music ] [ Music ] Ladies and gentlemen, would you please remain standing for our National Anthem, performed by Isabell Pollard, one of today's graduates. Graduates, please leave your caps on during the National Anthem. Our president will honor the flag on your behalf by removing his. >> [Singing] Oh, say can you see by the dawn's early light. What so proudly we hailed at the twilight's last gleaming. Whose broad stripes and bright stars thru the perilous fight. O'er the ramparts we watched were so gallantly streaming. And the rocket's red glare, the bombs bursting in air. Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there. Oh, say does that star-spangled banner yet wave. O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave. [ Cheering ] >> Please be seated. Please be seated. And now, ladies and gentlemen, please welcome University of Maryland University College president, Javier Miyares. >> Good morning. Good morning, graduates, family members, friends, colleagues and honored guests. Our graduates have traveled many miles to walk across this stage. They have devoted many hours to earn their degrees. And as I look across the arena, I am filled with a sense of pride for all that you have accomplished. I speak for everyone at UMUC when I say that it has been our honor to help you in the pursuit of your goals and your dreams. Today, you represent our greatest achievement, and we are so proud to recognize and celebrate your success. I am also honored to offer a special salute to our active duty members of the US military and to our veterans who are graduating today. May I ask, may I ask that our military service members, our family members, their families, to please stand. [ Applause ] Your service to our country has earned you the respect and admiration of a grateful nation, and we are so pleased that you selected UMUC as your university of choice. In addition, I would like to recognize the people who have supported our graduates in so many ways. Let us take a moment to say thank you to the husbands, wives, partners, children, parents, grandparents and also some dear friends. [ Applause ] Congratulations to all of you. The heart and soul of every university is its faculty. Today, we offer a special thanks to the more than 4,500 educators of our graduates worldwide. Would the distinguished members of the UMUC faculty who are with us today representing our worldwide academic community please rise and be recognized? [ Applause ] I would now like to introduce the members of the UMUC community who have joined us on the platform. Dr. Alan Drimmer, senior vice-president and chief academic officer. [ Applause ] Dr. Kathryn Klose, vice-provost and dean of The Graduate School. [ Applause ] Dr. Kara Van Dam, vice-provost and dean of The Undergraduate School. [ Applause ] Philip Callahan, a 1966 graduate and president of the UMUC Alumni Association. [ Applause ] Dr. James Coker, member of the faculty and vice-chair of the Academic Advisory Board. [ Applause ] We thank you all. And now it is my privilege to introduce Robert Rauch, a member of the University System of Maryland Board of Regents, the governing board for UMUC and other public universities within the state of Maryland. Regent Rauch is a registered professional engineer in Maryland, Delaware and Virginia and a principal with the civil engineering and construction management firm, Rauch, Incorporated of Easton, Maryland. He is a graduate of University of Maryland College Park with a degree in civil engineering. He began his career with the Maryland Department of Natural Resources and served for six years as director of Public Works and the Talbot County engineer before moving to the private sector. Ladies and gentlemen, Regent Robert Rauch. [ Applause ] >> Good morning. I'm delighted to join you and extend best wishes from the university system of Maryland on behalf of the Board of Regents on this tremendous day. I'll go a little off script and tell you how excited I am to be here. My very first opportunity to address a commencement was here at UMUC five years ago. And I, there are many privileges that are associated with serving on the Board of Regents, but this is certainly my favorite and the best. And it's always exciting too to be with the crowd and know that there are few people out here that are friends and family from our beautiful eastern shore in the town of Easton. And it's just great to be here to celebrate with you. It's an honor to share this day with our president, Javier Miyares. His commitment to academic excellence and insightful leadership has been critical in UMUC's continued evolution as a leading global university. I'm also very pleased to share this special day with our commencement speaker, the Honorable Mike Miller, President of the Maryland Senate. I'm deeply grateful for President Miller's commitment to higher education, and we look forward to his inspirational words today. Most importantly, today is a day to recognize and congratulate you, the UMUC graduating class of 2018. Higher education is facing many challenges, including affordability, accessibility, the effects of rapidly changing technology, increased competition and educational alternatives, and the list goes on and on. Universities are also reaching out to a broader and growing international community. However, meeting the needs of these exceptional students comes with additional administrative logistic and informational demands and considerations. Some might view these demands as problems. I urge anyone who works for me, with me, to eliminate the word problem from their vocabulary. Anything perceived as a problem should be more appropriately considered an opportunity. Opportunities always come with challenges, however, and challenges must be met with innovation and creativity. University of Maryland University College is positioned and well-prepared to face and meet the challenges facing higher education today and well into the future. President Miyares and his entire dedicated team of educators, administrators, advisors, regularly present our Board of Regents with innovative changes and exciting initiatives that address today's educational challenges and assures that UMUC will remain a leader in providing the highest quality educational experience to local, regional, national and international students facing the heavy demands of service to our country, managing families and simply meeting the often daunting financial demands of everyday life. The degree you've earned from UMUC will open many doors leading to exciting opportunities that will enrich your lives and those of your families. Congratulations to all of you and to your loved ones. Take some quality time to celebrate this rewarding accomplishment and keep looking forward. The best in life is still to come. Thank you. [ Applause ] >> Thank you, Regent Rauch. One of the great traditions of commencement is the keynote address. It is an opportunity to hear from someone whose achievements and works can inspire us all. This morning, we have the honor of hearing from a distinguished leader who has been improving lives of the people in Maryland for more than four decades. Maryland Senate President Thomas V. "Mike" Miller, Jr. began his public service in 1970 when he was elected to represent Prince George's County in the Maryland House of Delegates. Four years later, he was elected to the Maryland State Senate, and he has been reelected every four years since. His current district includes portions of Calvert, Charles and Prince George's County. From 1983 to 1986, Miller served as chair of the Judicial Proceedings Committee. In 1987, he was elected by his peers as president of the Maryland State Senate and is today the longest serving state senate president in both Maryland and the nation. [Inaudible]. [ Applause ] Senator Miller has a longstanding and ongoing commitment to our public university system. He was raised by a family of educators and is himself a product of Maryland's public university system. A native of Clinton, Maryland, and the oldest of ten children in his family, he is a graduate of Surrattsville High School. He earned his bachelor's degree from the University of Maryland College Park and his law degree from the University of Maryland Francis King Carey School of Law. Admitted to the bar in 1967, Miller is a member of local, state and national bar associations. He has practiced law for more than 40 years and maintains offices in Clinton and Dunkirk, Maryland. He lives in Chesapeake Bay with his wife of 52 years, and they have five children and 15 grandchildren. We are honored that this true champion of our students and our public universities and of all the people of Maryland join us today to address the UMUC class of 2018. Please join me in welcoming this morning's keynote speaker, the president of the Maryland State Senate, the Honorable Thomas V. "Mike" Miller, Jr. [ Applause ] >> Thank you. Thank you very much President Javier. I really don't deserve that long introduction. In fact, I'll try to make my remarks shorter than the introduction. As he indicated, I'm the oldest of ten children, father of five, 14 grandchildren. Got two degrees here from the University of Maryland. So I've had my share of commencements, as have you. And my idea of a commencement speaker is like a, more like a corpse at an Irish wake. You need the corpse, but the corpse is not supposed to say too much, right, you know. And one thing about President Javier, he gave that introduction the way it was supposed to be in the sense that I was at Cole Field House in the early 1990s giving a commencement address at College Park, and a young coed who was introducing me got very confused and very nervous. And my bio says Senator Miller was elected to the Maryland Senate in 1974, and before that, eh served one term in the Maryland House of Delegates, okay. She got a little confused, flustered, as some of us do up here and said that Senator Miller was elected to the Maryland Senate in 1974 and before that served one term in the Maryland House of Corrections, okay. Now, me being a democrat, and coming from Prince George's County, she probably thought it wasn't too far from the truth, right. And so we appreciate very much the opportunity to be here, especially the sacrifices you've made. And nobody but yourself knows the sacrifice that yourself and your family made to be here. You know, but you can ups and downs and put downs, including from your spouses. Twenty-one years after my wife had been married, we've been married for 52 years, thank you. [ Applause ] I owe it all to my wife. But 21 years after we were married, I'd been through the House of Delegates and the Senate, and in 1986 I was elected president of the Maryland Senate in 1986. And my wife and I were celebrating, and it was a great night. It's only husbands and wives can have a great night. And I said to her, I was full of myself and I said honey, did you ever dream anything like this could happen? And she said no. I said honey, not even in your wildest dreams? And she said darling, we've been married 21 years, but you have never been in my wildest dreams, you know. [ Laughter ] And then you get a put down six months ago I was on the streets of Annapolis and this elderly lady came by. She said, very friendly, said did anybody tell you you look like Mike Miller? And I said yes. And she said, does it happen often? And I smiled and said yes. She said, doesn't that tick you off? [ Laughter ] Well obviously, I cleaned it up a little bit. But what does tick me off is that people don't appreciate and understand what the University of Maryland University College is all about. I consider myself sort of the godfather of University College because I was a proud graduate of College Park in '64. Proud graduate of the law school in 1967. I was in the House of Delegates in 1970. And they came to me and they said, University College has outgrown College Park. This is a worldwide institution. It needs a separate entity. It needs to be an entity all of its own within the University of Maryland system. And there was quite a few heart bangs from all of us who had graduated from College Park. And in 1964 seen this beautiful building, the most beautiful building on campus, grew up this five-story building with a conference center, a bar, restaurant, 111 rooms, and it was the home of the University of Maryland University College. But we voted to make that change. And the reason we voted to make that change was because the University of Maryland University College had outgrown College Park. In fact, it had outgrown any institution within the system. You know, it was created in 1947 for troops overseas and also to offer weekend classes and night classes here at the University of Maryland College Park. And then in 1950, it started sending, 1949, started sending people overseas, 1950 to Asia. And it just grew and grew. And it is what it is today with over 80,000 students and 140 locations. But what's important, again, as the oldest of ten children, many of us had really had to beg, borrow and really scramble to get an education, including me, who went to College Park because guess what, it was a land grant college. It was affordable. It was affordable. And that's the legacy of the University of Maryland University College. It's the great equalizer. It's accessible. It's affordable. And lets everyone have that possibility of obtaining the American dream. You know, making their life better than the life that their parents had before them. And achieve something that maybe their siblings hadn't achieved, the neighbors hadn't achieved. And nobody knows but yourself, again, the sacrifices you made. Some of you were in the military overseas. Some of you were bootstrappers. Some of you couldn't afford a four-year college. Some of you had jobs that require, I have a lady who works in my office five days a week. And on Friday nights she goes to a paint shop. Saturday she sells paint. And she carries a 4.0 driving back and forth here at the University College. She couldn't be in a college any other way. But it's a broad gamut. So for example, 15 years ago, I was at the Naval Academy homecoming, and I was sitting next to this admiral, a very fine guy. I was chatting with him. And chatting with his wife. And she said to me, you know, you're from Maryland. I said yes. And she goes, you know, I'm a graduate of the University of Maryland University College. And she said, it was just amazing that opportunity. And of course, later on in life I would see him as chairman of the joints chief of staff. And then ten years ago, Joe Tydings, who's a graduate of the University of Maryland College Park, University of Maryland Law School, etcetera, he had a dinner for his friends in Montgomery County. And I'm at one table. And they put my wife at another table with Joe Tydings. But on one side is Anthony Kennedy, Chief Justice Kennedy, sitting next to my wife. I'm scared, what the hell is my wife going to say to this guy, you know. She's going to tell all the family jewels, make me look like a jerk, which she can very do often. And on the other side was the commandant of the Marine Corps. And so I was just really scared of what she's going to say and how she's going to carry on the dinner conversation. And afterwards, she said, it was fabulous. Justice Kennedy is the most wonderful guy. He loves his job. He doesn't like going to all these dinners, but he really likes life in Washington D.C. But the other fellow was more fascinating. He was from Texas, and he was a marine. And he's the commandant of the Marine Corps. And she said he gave me a book, Flags of our Fathers and told me he owed his success to the University of Maryland University College. And mind you, this is the commandant of the Marine Corps. And what I'm saying to you is this, University College is for everybody. Now not everybody here is military brass, but everybody here does have brass. Brass you-know-whats, because otherwise, you wouldn't be here, right. You had the drive, right, the determination, the responsibility, the integrity, the vision, and the enthusiasm to make this dream come true. To ask, Washington D.C. is broken. It's broken. Our state is doing fine. We balanced our budget according to the Constitution. We've got a, you know, millions of dollars set aside, the rainy day fund. We funded education, healthcare, public safety, the environment, what have you. In fact, this year we lowered the cost of college tuition. And in fact, made college tuition more affordable. Not just at the University College and other institutions of higher education, but provided for free community colleges, free community colleges for the students in the state of Maryland. It's a big deal. It's a very big deal. So when I say it's broken, I'm asking you to participate in the process, whether you're a republican or democrat, look at the issues, study the candidates and go to the polls and vote. In Maryland, we vote in June. The general election is November. Find the candidate that represents your views best but somebody who'll reach across the aisles, separate themselves from their political party. Separate themselves from their own personal [inaudible] and make America even greater than it is today, okay. That's what we need you to do to participate in the process. You know, there's, Edward Gibbon who wrote the Rise and Fall of the Roman Empire, he talked about one of the great democracies, about Athens. And he said in the end, more than they wanted freedom, they wanted security. When they wanted not to give to society but for society to give to them. When the freedom they wanted was freedom from responsibility, then and only then did Athens cease to be free. Ladies and gentlemen of the class of 2018, with your help, America will never cease to be free. But remember also one of the quotes from Nelson Mandela. Nelson Mandela set these goals for himself. He'd see these mountains. He had to climb a mountain for his education. A long way off, a long hill to climb, even farther he had to get at freedom. He was locked up, incarcerated in a single cell for over 20 years. He said I've walked the wrong way. He says I get to the mountaintop. He says I see the vista, but I don't stop there. He says because there are other hills to climb. Ladies and gentlemen of the class of 2018, you've had the best of all possible worlds. One, you're citizens of the United States and two, proud 2018 graduates of University of Maryland University College. Thank you. God Bless You. It's a privilege of mine to be here. [ Applause ] >> Thank you, President Miller, for those inspiring words and for joining our graduates at today's ceremony. Could we have one more show of appreciation for President Miller, please? [ Applause ] Graduates. This is a day to look back at what you've learned in order to achieve this goal. It's a day to look around with awareness of those who have helped you achieve it. It's a day to look ahead to a brighter future because of the investment you've made in yourselves. As adult learners, you've faced unique challenges in your journey. Many of you have arrived at UMUC with families, jobs and a host of life experiences. Most of you had not had the luxury of being able to study throughout the day and to take your weekends off. You've had to make time for your studies. And that meant taking time away from other responsibilities. It has not been an easy road, and we know that. So, speaking on behalf of your professors, let me say how proud we are of your achievements. On this day you don't need role models. Today, you are the role models for us and for everyone in this arena. [ Applause ] Today -- [ Applause ] Today, you prove you have what it takes, and what it takes is the courage, fortitude and perseverance that you exemplify, we congratulate and honor you. Each year, the university selects a member of the graduating class to speak on your behalf. Someone who represents the university with special attributes of UMUC students. And today's speaker, Rhonda Singletary, certainly fits the bill. Rhonda today earns the Bachelor of Science degree. We're delighted that her family joins us in the audience in celebration and in pride of her accomplishments. Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome Rhonda Singletary. [ Applause ] >> Thank you, Dr. Drimmer. Are you familiar with the slogan, teamwork makes the dream work? To our esteemed president, member of the platform party, honored guests, family and friends, your collected teamwork has indeed made the dream work for the class of 2018. I'm sure that some in the audience today have been looking forward to commencement for years. Others are just relieved they were able to fit it into a schedule that's already stretched to capacity. Some traveled thousands of miles to attend, and for others, the university is just around the corner. But my point is, no matter where you fall on that spectrum, you showed up to celebrate our accomplishments today, and that's what loyal team members do. From my 88-year-old mother who is here today to witness the first person in her immediate family to earn a bachelor's degree -- [ Applause ] I love you, Mama. To my 27-year-old son, father of three, who will walk across this very stage next year following in the new family tradition. [ Applause ] I love you, too, JJ. To the combined expertise of the faculty, the experience of our president, our friends and family who did not turn us away when we needed to tap into your Wi-Fi at 11:59 on a Sunday night because all our systems had failed. We say thank you. [ Applause ] My educational journey began nine years ago at Anne Arundel Community College when I was in my 40s. So now, it's free, right. Thank you, Mr., sometimes I wonder what took me so long. And then I remember, oh, I spent two years in a math lab trying to embrace that foreign language called Algebra. Oh, then I remember I spent two years in recovery from breast cancer immediately after I received my associate's degree. [ Applause ] But as a digital immigrant, I vividly remember the first time I logged onto my first class at UMUC. My granddaughter just loves the idea that I'm older than the internet. So, my initial reaction was, I can't do this. And I'm sure I'm not the first. But look at us now. We have, yeah, yeah. You all, look at you all. We have studied in coffee shops, public libraries, airports and well, there was that time I may have submitted a paper from the baptismal changing room at my mom's church. Parking lots, waiting rooms and of course, in the comfort of our pajamas on our sofas. And we've been able to communicate with professors, advisors, classmates, and we never had to lug one heavy textbook. But in all those places, UMUC equipped us. As a sociology major, I am prepared to pursue my passion advocating for the poor, the condemned and the incarcerated. And our educational journey has not been without challenges, but clearly, you can teach an old dog new tricks. [ Applause ] You have inspired us. You have motivated us. You have encouraged us. You have made the world a better place by investing in us. Thank you President Miyares, faculty, friends, family and guests for being the team behind our dream. And to all I say, don't leave your passion locked inside of you. You are equipped to overcome your obstacles and to see your dream become a reality. Congrats to my fellow classmates and to all the military who could not attend in person today. Godspeed. [ Applause ] >> Thank you, Rhonda. Thank you, Rhonda, for sharing your remarkable story. We wish you all the best. And now, the time has arrived to present our graduates for individual recognition. [ Applause ] Thursday evening, our doctoral candidates were honored in this separate conferral and a hooding ceremony. Today, we will call the names of our master's, bachelor's and associate candidates and confer those degrees. Each name we announce today is of great importance, and we ask for your courtesy as each person is called so that all of our students and their guests can enjoy their special moments. Graduates, please remain on the floor until all of your colleagues have had their opportunity to cross the stage. And then our president will confer your degrees following the presentation of all candidates. Dr. Katheryn Klose, vice-provost and dean of UMUC's Graduate School will now present our master's degree candidates. Dr. Klose. [ Applause ] >> Thank you, Dr. Drimmer. And good morning to our graduates, distinguished faculty and honored guests. We will now present the candidates who are earning the following degrees. The Master of Arts in Teaching, the Master of Business Administration, The Master of Distance Education and E-Learning, the Master of Education and Instructional Technology, the Master of International Management, and the Master of Science. The hoods they wear symbolizes significant achievement and the investment they have made in their future. I ask that you join me in recognizing these outstanding women and men as we acknowledge their academic accomplishments and wish them well in their professional endeavors. We are very proud of you. Candidates, you will now be directed to the stage for individual recognition. Please remain in your seats until invited to come forward. Let us begin with the first graduate.
