Speakers are for Commencement two years hence.
The Committee has nine members: four students (two sophomores and two juniors); four faculty members, and the Assistant Director of the McCaffrey Center.
Committee members will be selected the spring semester of the prior year in order to allow the committee an entire year to complete its work and provide ample time for the President to consider the nominees.

Faculty representatives are selected by the Academic Council and serve for two year staggered terms.
