On behalf of the entire Faculty and Staff in the Department of Art History and Art Conservation, I would like to express my most sincere congratulations to every one of you. You have persevered and succeeded--through inordinately difficult times, I might add.

You will soon receive a Queen's degree in Art History or Art Conservation. As soon as you cross that threshold and receive your diploma, you will join the ranks of our highly successful alumni - a far-flung network of arts leaders, cultural entrepreneurs and creative types who are making important contributions to the world. Call on these people. They are your friends. You are linked for life by a common experience. Just don't forget to pay it forward when it's your turn to help a Queen's grad in the future.

I wish you great success in the next chapter of your life, and in every chapter beyond. May you all try to leave the world a little better than you found it.
