Lifelong learning and perpetual improvement: Brandeis celebrates the Class of 2024

Campus was alive with jubilant celebration as Brandeis held its 73rd Commencement Exercises for more than 1,400 undergraduate and graduate students on May 19.

“Do good things, help others. Leadership is humility and generosity squared. Remember the opposite of faith is not doubt. Doubt is central to faith. The opposite of faith is certainty. The kinship of the soul begins with your own at times withering self-examination.”

Ken Burns, H’24, Undergraduate Commencement Speaker
