One honorary degree recipient delivered remarks on behalf of their fellow honorees. Singer, songwriter, producer, and director Taylor Swift delivered remarks at the Commencement for the Class of 2022 at 11:00 a.m. Disability rights activist Judith Heumann spoke on behalf of the honorary degree recipients at the Commencement for the Class of 2020 and Class of 2021 at 6:00 p.m.
