Words of Inspiration

In 2018, Janus was awarded an honorary Doctor of Humane Letters from her undergraduate alma mater, The State University of New York at New Paltz, and invited to deliver the commencement address. 

This week, we're celebrating graduates everywhere and the recipients of honorary doctorates whose  commencement addresses give us all a lot to think about:

  • Attorney and Human Rights champion ANITA HILL at Rutgers Law School.
  • Journalist, Philanthropist, and Businesswoman OPRAH WINFREY at the University of Southern California, Annenberg School for Communications and Journalism.
  • Member of the U.S. House of Representatives and Civil Rights icon JOHN LEWIS at Boston University.
  • Actor and Writer/Producer CHADWICK BOSEMAN at Howard University
  • Author/Historian and Journalist JANUS ADAMS at the State University of New York at New Paltz
  • and, Boston University graduating senior YASMIN YOUNIS.
