This year’s Commencement speaker will be Professor Nur Yalman, a renowned Social Anthropologist with a specialty in Middle Eastern Studies at Harvard University.  He is currently a Senior Fellow of the Harvard Society of Fellows and a Fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences. Professor Yalman shares the same dedication to humanistic principles as our university founder, Mr. Daisaku Ikeda, which led them to meet in person and discuss solutions to conflict arising from cultural differences.  Their dialogue resulted in a book, A Passage to Peace: Global Solutions from East and West, which was published in 2009. We are pleased and honored to welcome Dr. Yalman to our campus.
