Former U.S. Sen. Christopher 'Kit' Bond served as the commencement speaker. Bond also received an honorary doctorate of laws degree from Webster.
Bond told the audience of graduates and family that in the global marketplace, the best way for the United States to compete was with education. He also spoke of the judicious use of smart power.
Also receiving honorary doctorates in humane letters were Regents College London chief executive Aldwyn Cooper and Mary Alice Dwyer-Dobbin, a Webster alumna who has worked in daytime television.
Regents College serves as Webster's London campus.
