Considerations for the Speech

The draft of the commencement speech should:

  • Come from the heart.
  • Reflect on your student experience and key moments and memories while at MUIH.
  • Align with or reference MUIH’s foundational principles, values, and/or philosophy.
  • Speak to the work you will take into the world as a result of your studies at MUIH.
  • Include some reference to the positive impact of MUIH’s community, your classmates, and/or your faculty/staff.
  • Be prepared with the understanding that you are presenting to graduates from all MUIH programs, both on campus and online, and not just your program.
  • Take approximately four minutes to deliver.
