"I am beyond honored to speak to the Tippie college of business this spring 2021, especially as it follows such a challenging year during the COVID pandemic. Becoming part of the Tippie family and growing alongside some of the most genuine and hard-working individuals has been life-changing.

To our faculty, staff, and family, thank you so much for your devotion and support. We students are proud to step forward, empowered and educated through the excellence provided by the University of Iowa and support of our community."
