Congratulations to the graduating class of December 2013!
Belmont University held its winter 2013 commencement ceremony for graduate and undergraduate students on Dec. 13, in the Curb Event Center.
Belmont celebrated the graduation of a total of 421 students. During the graduation ceremony, 319 undergraduate and 102 master’s degrees were conferred.
Dr. Robert C. Fisher, president of the university, presided over the event. Dr. Ronnie Littlejohn—professor, director of Belmont’s Asian Studies program and chair of the Department of Philosophy— presented the commencement address. In May, Littlejohn was named Belmont’s 2013-14 Chaney Distinguished Professor. The Chaney Distinguished Professor Award, determined on the basis of superior teaching, is presented each year to a faculty member who best represents the vision of the university to be a “premier teaching institution.”
