Goodwin College of Professional Studies Commencement Speakers

Goodwin students are prepared to meet the challenges and opportunities lie ahead. As working adults and students eager to forge their own path, they are uniquely poised to lead us through this historic moment with their agility, perseverance and ambition. Drexel University and Goodwin College leadership along with accomplished student representatives and our esteemed keynote speaker celebrate your excellence:

Drexel University President John Fry

Interim Nina Henderson Provost, Paul E. Jensen, PhD

Goodwin College Assistant Dean Tim Gilrain

Keynote Speaker Lois Moran


Lois Moran is a career woman, entrepreneur, and success-maker. She draws from a unique base of experience that began over 20 years ago in corporate America. It all started with two Fortune 500 pharmaceutical companies: GSK (formerly SK&F), followed by Merck (formerly Schering-Plough). Lois then crossed over to agency life, which culminated in the co-founding of JUICE Pharma Worldwide, where she served as CEO of the New York City office for 15 years. Lois is impassioned to help women get into the driver's seat of their careers. She is the author of Career VOLTA: Shift Your Career into High Gear. Her confidence-building programs are designed to spark illuminations and action plans that bring life-transforming VOLTAs. Lois's courage and resolve are rooted in her faith and her family — which happen to include a Drexel Dragon, her daughter is a proud Westphal alumna.
