Lesley University will hold its 2013 Commencement on Saturday, May 18, at the Bank of America Pavilion, 290 Northern Ave., Boston.

Founded in 1909, Lesley University expects to confer 2,174 degrees and 60 certificates this year, including 23 PhD’s, 1,674 Master’s, and 468 Bachelor’s.

The ceremony for Lesley’s two graduate schools will be held from 10 a.m. – 12 p.m., and graduates will be addressed by Honorary Degree recipients Paul Reville, former Secretary of Education for the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and a member of the Senior Faculty at the Harvard University Graduate School of Education; and Reverend Liz Walker, an Emmy Award-winning television journalist, documentary film producer, humanitarian and co-founder of My Sister’s Keeper, an advocacy organization for women and children in Sudan.

The ceremony for Lesley’s two undergraduate schools will be held from 2 – 4 p.m., and graduates will be addressed by Honorary Degree recipients Graham Nash, legendary singer-songwriter and co-founder of the Grammy Award-winning group Crosby, Stills & Nash; and David McCullough, Pulitzer Prize-winning author and historian and recipient of the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the nation’s highest civilian award.
“In markedly different ways, each of this year’s Honorary Degree recipients exemplifies the values that define a Lesley education: enhancing our culture through multifaceted arts and academics, building stronger communities and schools, and a passion for public service,” said Lesley University President Joseph B. Moore.

“We look forward to welcoming these accomplished individuals as they share their experiences with our graduates.”
