a regionally accredited
online university* that offers online
degree programs designed to help working adults advance in their
careers, will host their 26th commencement in Nashville on
March 15th. Capella's commencement will be held at the Music
City Center, which will be the first commencement held at the venue.
This will be Capella's largest commencement, with more than 1200
graduates planning to attend. Including the United States, six countries
will be represented, and 47 states and 5 territories/military addresses
will make up the U.S. attendance.
Addressing the graduates will be veteran political strategist Donna
Brazile, an adjunct professor, author, syndicated columnist, and
television political commentator. Brazile's passion is encouraging young
people to vote, to work within the system to strengthen it, and to run
for public office. Brazile worked on every presidential campaign from
1976 through 2000, when she became the first African-American to manage
a presidential campaign. She is also currently on the board of the
National Democratic Institute (NDI), the National Institute for Civil
Discourse, the Joint Center for Political and Economic Studies, and the
BlackAmericaWeb.com Relief Fund, Inc.
"Capella's commencement is a powerful event. We are very proud of our
learners who, as busy working adults, have sacrificed greatly to achieve
this major career and personal milestone. These graduates exemplify
dedication, persistence and tenacity, and I admire every one of them. On
behalf of all of us at Caella, I would like to extend heartfelt
congratulations to our 2014 graduates," Scott Kinney, Capella University
