To the 2022 Graduates of CNHP

Congratulations to the Class of 2022. It is my honor to congratulate you and celebrate your important achievements this year. Each graduating class encounters challenges and opportunities, and I have seen your class lean in and work incredibly hard in the face of immeasurable uncertainty. You have faced challenges not seen in a century, and you have done so with integrity and purpose. Your initiative, care, and resilience humble us all, and this will carry you into the next chapter of your lives. Class of 2022, you will lead in care and service, making this world a better place.

You are each forever part of the Drexel family. Your graduation marks an important shift from student to alumni. You have changed the University for the better through your advocacy for imperative social justice reforms and health equity. Your voices, actions, and impact will remain rooted in this College and at Drexel for decades to come. I encourage you to take that strong advocacy and apply it across the many professions that you will soon represent.

I look forward to standing beside you, as your colleague, as we seek to make meaningful progress in care, research, and service. You will always find that the College of Nursing and Health Profession will support and believe in you.

Congratulations, graduates!

All my best wishes for your bright future,
