Graduates at the 2013 JSC Graduation

JSC's 147th Commencement Ceremony took place Saturday, May 17, 2014. We celebrated nearly 400 members of the Class of 2014, including 321 students who received bachelor's degrees, 65 who received master's degrees and seven who received associate's degrees.

Veronika Scott, 24-year-old founder of the Detroit-based Empowerment Plan, gave the powerful keynote address. Our student speakers were Joe Gittleman (B.A., Professional Studies through JSC's External Degree Program), founding member and bass player for the ska-punk band The Mighty Mighty Bosstones; Elisabeth Beatty-Owens (B.A. Interdisciplinary Studies), student activist and a leader in the movement to increase state funding for higher education; and Christina Hill (M.A., Special Education), director of this year's "Think College" program at JSC, designed to ensure that people of all abilities have the option to experience college.
