The Search for a Student Commencement Speaker is ON!

Although it seems early in the semester to be thinking of commencement, we are beginning our search for a student speaker for the fall ceremony. Students who wish to apply must have a GPA of 3.50 or higher and have completed at least 60 credits at the University of Maryland, College Park.

All applications will be acknowledged. Finalists will be interviewed in early November, and the speaker will be chosen by mid-November.

Students may also visit the College of Behavioral and Social Sciences website to get more information on being the commencement speaker and to download a copy of the speaker application at:
