CUA Provost Is Main Speaker at Panama Commencement

On Dec. 18, James F. Brennan, Ph.D., provost of The Catholic University of America, was the main speaker at the first commencement awarding baccalaureate degrees through a consortium of American universities in Panama (Florida International University, the University of Louisville, the College of Notre Dame of Maryland, and Towson University). The consortium is led by the Quality Leadership University, based in Panama and known for innovative programming, primarily in the area of business, throughout Central and South America.

Thirty-three students were awarded the bachelor's degree in business administration, and Brennan was recognized during the ceremony in Panama City for his instrumental role in the promotion of accessible higher education in Panama, while serving at two of the consortium institutions.
