The student organization UWW Empower organizes the student speaker competition for commencement. One student speaker will be selected for the Winter 2019 ceremony.
Each college dean will nominate up to three individuals for the competition. Students who are not nominated by a dean can apply online. Please note a letter of recommendation from a faculty/staff member is required as part of the application. Late or incomplete applications will not be accepted. Finalists will be asked to audition before a selection committee of students, faculty and staff.
