I gave the Graduation Commencement Speaker at Southern New Hampshire University’s International Program of their Graduate School of Community Economic Development today. The students are practitioners from around the world who already have made significant contributions to development efforts in many nations. With the Masters of Science in International Community Economic Development they received at this degree ceremony, they will leverage their ability to achieve even greater accomplishments. After an excerpt of my remarks, also watch video clips of graduate speeches. Also post your comments about successful economic development efforts, whether by corporations, governments or NGOs. Keeping with the spirit of international cooperation fostered in this graduate program, rather than choosing a single student to make commencement remarks, a group did a “Unity in Diversity” presentation. These videos are of students from Cameroon, Colombia, the US, Brazil, the Philippines and Ghana. Beyond the countries they hail from, these students are doing work in Guatemala, Mexico and other countries. I posted clips of all the students who spoke as this will be the only way their family and friends around the world can see what they said at this graduation ceremony.
