Nancy Pelosi to Address Undergraduates at UCLA Luskin Commencement

Speaker of the House will offer keynote remarks during school’s in-person ceremony June 10

By Sam Catanzaro

​​Nancy Pelosi, speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives and a member of Congress for more than three decades, will give the keynote address at the 2022 undergraduate commencement ceremony at the UCLA Luskin School of Public Affairs.

Pelosi will speak during the UCLA Luskin ceremony at 3 p.m. on June 10 on the patio outside of UCLA’s Kerckhoff Hall. A crowd of about 1,000 graduating students, family members and other invited guests is expected to attend. 

“Nancy Pelosi is a renowned leader who has skillfully guided California and the nation through some trials and tribulations — and many triumphs — during her long career as a public servant,” said Gary Segura, dean of the Luskin School. “She has also been a trailblazer in Congress and a role model for those who, like many of our students, may aspire to hold public office someday. 

The Luskin School also will host commencement for students earning graduate degrees at 9 a.m. on June 10. Actor, activist and UCLA alumnus George Takei will be the keynote speaker.
