The student organization UWW Empower organizes the student speaker competition for commencement. Two student speakers will be selected for the May 2017 ceremonies: one person from the colleges of Arts and Communication/Business and Economics, and one person from the colleges of Letters and Sciences/Education and Professional Studies.
Each college dean will nominate up to three individuals for the competition. Students who are not nominated by a dean can apply at https://orgsync.com/114798/forms/220846. The deadline to apply is 5 p.m. Thursday, March 9. Finalists will be asked to audition before a selection committee of students, faculty and staff.
