Graduate programs celebrate investitures
Jun 08, 2013 | by Elizabeth Mc Nally | The Dartmouth
The Geisel School of Medicine, Thayer School of Engineering, the Dartmouth Institute for Health Policy and Clinical Practice and Tuck School of Business hosted individual graduation ceremonies, on June 7 and 8. Graduates will receive their diplomas with the undergraduate Class of 2013 at Commencement on Sunday.
Thayer and Tuck held their Investiture ceremonies on June 8 in Spaulding Auditorium and Tuck Circle, respectively. The ceremonies included speeches and distribution of master’s hoods to graduates and awards to students, faculty and staff.
Subra Suresh spoke at Thayer’s Investiture and will sit on the platform on Sunday to receive an honorary degree. He was recently appointed president of Carnegie Mellon University and has served as head of the National Science Foundation for three years.
Thayer Dean Joseph Helble said Suresh is a prominent materials engineer who has “done transformative things” to support entrepreneurship.
Thayer expects to award 100 bachelor’s degrees, 51 master’s of engineering management, six master’s of science and 21 PhD degrees in engineering sciences.
“Commencement is a tiring time for faculty and staff,” Helble said. “We’re busy bringing everything to a close, but we particularly enjoy watching the students we’ve worked with reach their culminating experience and step out to take on the world.”
