In the message, Maloney acknowledged that Commencement is one of the most important milestones in a student’s life, and the entire Worcester State community—faculty, staff, and alumni—looks forward to celebrating this special day with graduates, their families, and friends.
“I am encouraged by the extraordinary commitment I have seen from faculty to ensure that these students can complete their coursework and meet graduation requirements this semester,” Maloney said. “My hat is off to that spirit of cooperation and the determination to take charge of what we can control for the good of our students. I look forward to celebrating that achievement, as well as our students’ achievements, in August.”
