2019 All-Campus Commencement

Former secretary of state Madelene Albright will deliver the keynote address at All Campus Commencement on June 15. An icon of American diplomacy, Albright shattered the glass ceiling when she was named the nation’s first female secretary of state. The university is proud to have former secretary of state Albright share her insight as a strong female leader and dedicated public servant, inspiring the Class of 2019 to create positive change.UC San Diego, recognized as one of the top ten public universities in the U.S., is committed to supporting cutting-edge research and the global promotion of human rights—core values that align with the work of Albright. She was appointed secretary of state by President Bill Clinton in 1997 after she served as ambassador to the United Nations for four years. Serving as secretary of state until 2001, she reinforced America’s alliances, advocated for democracy and human rights, and promoted American trade, business, labor and environmental standards abroad.

As the 64th secretary of state, she is among the highest-ranking women in the history of the U.S. government.
