Education is the most powerful weapon you can use to change the world. — BB King
Congratulations, graduands! You now hold a valuable degree from the University of Lethbridge.
Never before have we been faced with, so much information. It bombards us every day. But during your time with us at the U of L, you learned to think critically, to ask questions and to find answers. You've been exploring connections between people, places, ideas, communities and big issues that face our world. Take those understandings of connection and complexity and use them to apply yourself to the world you're going to face moving forward.
These skills will serve you well, no matter what you do next or where your next steps take you. We know you're ready for whatever challenges and adventures that lie ahead. Now, take your degree and be a leader in your community. Be an engaged citizen in your country and help make positive change in the world. You are creative. You are a discoverer. You are an innovator. You understand and embrace different perspectives and world views. You are ready to take on the problems of society to build a better future for humanity than what we are seeing in the world today.
So go out. Change the world. And don't forget us here at the University of Lethbridge.
