Public service an 'honorable and rewarding pursuit'
While Brandeis' newest graduates celebrated their academic achievements and contemplated their futures, they were encouraged to make public service part of their lives during the university’s 64th commencement ceremony on Sunday, May 17.
Speaking before more than 7,000 students, faculty, families and friends at the Gosman Sports and Convocation Center, Ambassador Thomas R. Pickering called public service an “honorable and rewarding pursuit.”
“Service to country, to family, to friends, to our society remains an extremely important part of what determines our success as people, as a nation, and in our world,” said Pickering. “Public service will bring you the opportunity to be part of a mission that has the greater good in mind and the ability to advocate and make changes and to support and improve the lives of millions.”>> Read the full story on BrandeisNOW
