A Thoughtful, Productive, and Responsible Life: Read the 65th Annual Convocation Remarks by Dean and Professor Greg Hess

Couldn’t make it to opening Convocation on August 30? We have the remarks from featured speaker Gregory Hess, vice president for academic affairs, dean of the faculty, James G. Boswell Professor of Economics and George R. Roberts Fellow.

Hess’ address, A Thoughtful, Productive and Responsible Life, is a reflection on “why CMC is a great institution, why you [students] made a great choice to come here, and why I love CMC so very much.

“Out of a landscape of river rock and citrus fields,” Hess notes, “this mission-focused liberal arts college has emerged in 65 years as an exceptionally elite institution. You are now members of this great and proud tradition.”
