The executive director and co-founder of The Millennium Campus Network (MCN), Sam Vaghar, will address hundreds of undergraduate and graduate students at Lynn University’s 2013 commencement ceremonies on Friday, May 10 and Saturday, May 11.

Vaghar, 26, is the youngest commencement speaker in Lynn’s 50-year history and one of the youngest in the nation. As a member of Generation Y, Vaghar is a millennial – like many of the graduates he will be addressing next month.

Lynn has strong ties with the MCN, a Boston-based, national non-profit that is dedicated to empowering university student organizations across the United States to be effective partners for global development. Like the MCN, Lynn focuses on not only educating its students but also building global citizens.

“Through his work with the MCN, Sam Vaghar has inspired students around the world," Ross said. "I have no doubt that his excitement and passion will impact Lynn’s students as well.”

Under Vaghar’s leadership, the MCN has grown tremendously and now educates over 1,000 campus leaders through annual conferences, trains emerging leaders through an innovative fellowship program and allocates Student Action Grants to support activism on campuses and overseas.
