Commencement Letter from Dr. Duffett
Please accept my personal congratulations on your graduation from Eastern University. You can take pride in achieving this worthy goal. My congratulations are also extended to your family and friends who have encouraged and supported you throughout this journey.
I believe that you have had the opportunity to grow both spiritually and academically in a Christian community that is committed to faith, reason and justice. All of us at Eastern are grateful that you chose to further your education with one of our fine Schools. We are aware that you had many options and appreciate that you entrusted us with this important part of your life.
As you move forward on the path that is uniquely yours, it is my sincere hope that you will use the knowledge and preparation you received here to make a real difference in our world. You are now part of our network of over 20,050 alumni worldwide. I encourage you to stay connected to your alma mater through our active Alumni Association and by coming back for Homecoming and other events.
Again, congratulations and heartfelt thanks!
In God's Service,
Dr. Robert G. Duffett
