This is a very special edition of Weatherheadlines. In addition to reporting on news from the past month and highlighting upcoming events, this month’s issue features Graduation 2006. Beginning on Friday, May 19th with an awards ceremony in the Dively Building and concluding with a post-graduation celebratory party at the Peter B. Lewis Building on Sunday, May 21st, Weatherhead has been buzzing with activity.

I invite you to spend some time on the first-ever Weatherhead graduation website. There you’ll find the following sections:

  • Graduation Weekend 2006: Read articles about graduation events, including speeches, pictures and video highlighting the weekend activities.
  • Graduate Spotlights: Marketing graduate assistant Jim Armour (MBA ‘06) interviewed graduates from each of our programs about their unique experience and what they are looking forward to in the future.
  • Looking Back: Enjoy a unique perspective written by graduates, staff and faculty as they describe what made 2006 special. And, be sure to click on pictures for a yearbook-style retrospective look at the many events of this past year.
  • Looking Forward: Take a moment to check out where our grads our going in the future and read a few final reflections from a staff member and a student.

For me, graduation was especially satisfying because the graduating full-time MBAs, EMBAs and I arrived at Weatherhead at the same time. Moreover, we graduated students from the first class of Saturday MBAs, MSM – liberal arts, and the Master’s of Positive Organizational Development and Change (MPOD) programs. Also, four Weatherhead staff members completed their degrees this year from the part-time Evening MBA program and one in the MPOD program.

With my best personal regards,
