Dario A. Cortes, PhD
President, Berkeley College

Dear Graduate,

Congratulations to the Class of 2015 on your graduation from Berkeley College! This day represents a culmination of years of hard work and determination. As you celebrate this proud milestone, remember those who have supported you in your journey and who have encouraged you to reach higher than you may have thought possible.

It has been a privilege to share this journey with you. We have watched you grow personally, academically and professionally in the pursuit of your dreams. Berkeley College is a better place because of the contributions you have made during your time here.

What has been most inspiring is the connection you have made to your local and global communities through internships and practicums, volunteerism and community service. These contributions will further your competitive advantage as a Berkeley College graduate.

I encourage you to stay connected to your Berkeley College family, cultivating relationships and taking advantage of networking opportunities through the Berkeley College Alumni Association. Now that you are a graduate, you will join more than 50,000 alumni from around the world who share the Berkeley tradition of applied learning, career development and community service.

As we celebrate the Class of 2015, we also recognize a milestone in the legacy of Berkeley College as an academic institution. This year, the College launched a School of Graduate Studies, and in September will begin offering a Master's of Business Administration (MBA) to alumni and students seeking a graduate degree in Management.

All of us at Berkeley are proud to celebrate this achievement with you. May your future be defined by many opportunities that bring you a lifetime of success.
