Duncan to give speech at 2010 Commencement

Arne Duncan, the U.S. Secretary of Education, will give the keynote address at this year's Commencement, the university announced earlier this month. A Harvard University graduate whose career spans from playing professional basketball in Australia to running Chicago's public schools, Duncan has been in the education field since 1992, when he ran the Ariel Education Initiative, a program dedicated to improving educational opportunities for students in Chicago's South Side. Many factors go into selecting a commencement speaker. "We want someone who is recognizable, informative and uplifting," said Steven Allred, university provost and chair of the speaker selection committee. "The speaker is someone who should not only be appropriate, but also challenging," Allred said.
