On Sunday, May 17, 2015, the College held its 177th Commencement, graduating the 298 members of the Class of 2015. Despite the threat of rain, the ceremony was still able to be held outside on Roberts Hall Green as friends, family, and other guests listened to speakers, including Seema Doshi ’15, Emily Judson and John Marshall Gest Professor of Global Philosophy Ashok Gangadean, Bryn Mawr College President Kimberly Wright Cassidy, President Dan Weiss, and three honorary degree recipients.
Those honorary degrees were conferred upon anti-apartheid activist Thandeka Luthuli Gcabashe, co-founder of Project H.O.M.E. Sister Mary Scullion, and founder and executive director of the Equal Justice Initiative Bryan A. Stevenson.
