The 95th Commencement exercises for the Class of 2013 will place on Sunday, May 19, 2013, on Tempel Green at 11 a.m.
Howard Gordon will be the 95th Commencement keynote speaker.
Gordon is the co-creator of the Emmy Award-winning television series “Homeland,” and was the showrunner and executive producer of “24.” His other television credits include “The X-Files,” “Buffy the Vampire Slayer,” “Angel,” “Beauty and the Beast” and “Spenser: For Hire.” He is also the author of two novels, “Gideon's War,” published in 2011, and the sequel, “Hard Target,” published this year.
His innovative work — and especially his talent for taking the most topical issues of the day and incorporating them into compelling storylines for broad audiences — is extraordinary, and reflects the kind of thoughtful, thorough and resourceful approach Connecticut College seeks to instill in its students through a liberal arts education.
Gordon, who graduated from Princeton University with a degree in English, is a member of the Pacific Council on International Policy, an organization focused on policy issues of special resonance to the West Coast, and is a former president of the Stroke Association of Southern California.
