Today, I’d like to share with you another message from one of our wonderful Commencement speakers this year, this time from Bishar Jenkins, Master of Public Policy.
Bishar’s statement that “a commitment to social justice alone is not enough. Our commitment to social justice cannot merely be theoretical, it must be kinetic” is particularly resonant right now. Our present moment has revealed in harsh relief the dire need for effective, responsible, and ethical policymakers, and I am grateful to know that Heller students will be among those leading the charge. Again, congratulations to the Heller class of 2020; I can’t wait to see how you change the world.
