Members of the Class of 2020.
00:12
On behalf of the entire university community,
00:15
I extend our most sincere congratulations to you
00:18
on your graduation from Indiana University.
00:21
As you celebrate this major milestone -- virtually --
00:23
with your extended families and friends,
00:26
you are also making IU history
00:28
as members of the IU Bicentennial Class of 2020!
00:32
The enormous range of your achievements
00:34
as members of this historic class
00:36
is testimony to the time you have invested
00:39
so diligently in your education
00:41
and to all that you have learned.
00:44
I also want to extend our most sincere thanks to all of you
00:47
for all you have done during your final semester
00:50
to overcome so successfully the unprecedented disruptions
00:54
brought about by the global COVID-19 pandemic.
00:59
We are immensely grateful for all the individual and
01:02
collective sacrifices you have made so selflessly
01:05
for the greater good.
01:07
Indiana University -- and indeed the entire world --
01:10
are in the midst of an extremely difficult and disruptive time.
01:13
But Indiana University is a creative, bold, compassionate,
01:18
and resilient community.
01:20
These are the values that bind us all together --
01:23
and these are the qualities that define IU graduates.
01:27
I know you will continue to embody these virtues
01:30
as you go through life,
01:32
as you embark on successful careers,
01:34
or as you pursue graduate education.
01:37
It is to you, and to your fellow graduates around the world,
01:41
that society now looks for your commitment as citizens
01:44
and for your energy and seriousness of purpose
01:47
as you grapple with the most formidable problems
01:50
that confront us.
01:52
Take your skills and talents,
01:54
your diligence and determination,
01:56
your intelligence and effort,
01:57
and be the creators of tomorrow.
02:00
You have the power to shape your world and, as you do so,
02:04
to embody the creativity, boldness, compassion,
02:08
and resilience that define you
02:10
as graduates of Indiana University.
02:13
Congratulations and best wishes.
