December 2020 Recognition Ceremony Speech in Four Languages


On Dec. 19, nearly 1,500 Cornell students celebrated their winter graduation in a virtual recognition ceremony viewed around the world – the first such event at Cornell, and a fitting end to what President Martha E. Pollack called “a semester like no other at Cornell.” President Pollack's speech (beginning at minute 2:35) has been translated into four languages for our international community and their families and friends. Congratulations to all the graduates.
