Congratulations to the Class of 2013

Dear Class of 2013,

It is my deepest hope for each of you that during your time at the University of Rhode Island you have discovered new things about yourself and that you have defined what you would like to do to transform the world and make it a better place.

You have the opportunity, which many of you have already seized, to join with others in creating a new and better future. Our graduates are powerful and inspirational reminders of the most important outcome of the University’s work: education of people who are better prepared and empowered to pursue their hopes and aspirations, and to do so with respect, understanding, and appreciation for others.

You have been an integral part of a diverse community of talented people who constantly “Think Big.” Using the knowledge and wisdom you have gained, I believe that you are ready to innovate, renew, and rebuild a vibrant and sustainable future for Rhode Island, our nation, and the world.

Know that you have left your mark—your activities and accomplishments are a part of the permanent record of your alma mater. We hope in return that we have left an indelible impression on you—that you have a new purposefulness and have set your feet upon a new path because of the patterns of thought and the knowledge that you have acquired here.

Wherever you go and whatever you do, your alma mater will have a continued interest in you and your accomplishments.

Congratulations to the University of Rhode Island Class of 2013!

David M. Dooley
President, University of Rhode Island
