The Mirror Test

2017 Commencement Address

School of Music Dean Robert Blocker’s charge to the Class of 2017, delivered at Commencement on May 22, 2017, is titled The Mirror Test. “Two years ago, when most of you arrived, you brought to us your distinctive values — personal, artistic, and educational — and in our experiences of mutual learning, your beliefs have collided and intersected with those of the University and the School of Music,” he told the graduates. “You have changed us, and we have changed you!”
