On May 4, 2022, we celebrated the College of Science convocation in the Jon M. Huntsman Center. Many times, over the last two years, such a ceremony seemed all but impossible. And yet, faculty, family, and friends all came together on a perfect spring day to send our graduates into the next chapters of their careers.
It’s all gone by in such a blur that one can quickly forget that it was scientists and mathematicians who first shed light on the pandemic, ultimately developing the vaccines—scientific triumphs in their own right—that led us out of it. Likewise, it will be our College of Science graduates who continue to tackle the grand challenges of the future.
