Commencement Address from Interim Dean Duane Dunn

Congratulations on completing your degree from Kansas State University. I hope that at some point I am able to personally congratulate you, but until then I hope you will accept this virtual congratulation as an expression of our sincere and heartfelt recognition of your achievement.

We are thrilled that you chose K-State for your degree attainment using the online learning opportunities afforded you by Global Campus. I can assure you that your faculty, your advisors, and all of us at K-State are excited that you now join the thousands of other alumni who are graduates of K-State through Global Campus.

I know the excitement and awareness of true accomplishment that occurs at graduation, as it truly is a milestone in your life and career. Your determination and commitment exhibited by attaining your degree as a distance student places you among the very best of dedicated students.

Author Jim Collins indicates that “Greatness is not a function of circumstance. Greatness, it turns out, is largely a matter of conscious choice, and discipline.” You made a conscious choice of attaining a degree and exhibited the discipline necessary to reach that goal.

I encourage you to utilize your education, knowledge, experience, and degree to consistently improve your life choices and career decisions and the lives of others.
Again, congratulations, and welcome to the family of Kansas State University graduates.
