“We’re excited to honor our graduates who have all worked so hard to fulfill their dreams of earning a college education,” said Kristi Waite, president, Rasmussen College. “We’re confident the skills and education they received at Rasmussen College has given them the foundation they need to be successful in their careers and beyond.”

The graduates from summer 2012 through spring 2013 will be presented with certificates, diplomas, Associate’s and Bachelor’s degrees from the schools of Business, Design Education, Health Sciences, Justice Studies, Nursing and Technology. Many of the graduates are also industry certified – credentials that help them standout in today’s competitive job market.

“At Rasmussen College, we prepare students for careers projected to be in strong demand in the future,” said Tamryn Hennessy, national director of career services, Rasmussen College. “We’re proud 85 percent of our graduates college-wide are employed in their field or continuing their education. Here in Minnesota, many of our graduates have been hired by top employers such as Cargill, Allina Health, Mayo Clinic and the Drug Enforcement Administration. It affirms the relevancy of Rasmussen College’s programs and our students’ dedication to success.”

Andre Koen, community leader, public speaker, mentor and activist, will deliver the commencement ceremonies’ keynote address. The son of a Black Panther-turned-preacher, Koen learned at a young age the importance of reaching across cultural lines to seek understanding and acceptance, and has extensive experience in educating others regarding anti-racism. Koen is also well-known for his creation of innovative and behavioral changing courses, both for the classroom and online learning.

Alyssa Grindy, Surgical Technologist graduate from the Rasmussen College Brooklyn Park/Maple Grove campus, was selected as this year’s student speaker.
