Highlights from last year's Commencement
We are pleased to announce that Martin Kimani '96, Kenya's ambassador and permanent representative to the United Nations will serve as the 2022 Undergraduate Commencement Speaker. Martin will also receive an honorary degree.
Martin also serves as the Kenyan president’s Special Envoy for Countering Violent Extremism and is the immediate past director of Kenya’s National Counter Terrorism Centre. Previously, he served as permanent representative to the UN Environment Programme and the UN Human Settlements Programme. Earlier in his career, he was a director at the Intergovernmental Authority on Development’s Conflict Early Warning and Response Mechanism in Ethiopia.
Over the past 20 years, Kimani has worked to a senior level in the global currency and bond markets, political risk advisory for underwriters and other corporates, and peace and security in the Horn of Africa and East Africa. He was honored for his service by the president of Kenya with the Chief of the Order of the Burning Spear award, which is one of the highest commendations a citizen can receive. Kimani earned his doctorate and master’s degree in war studies at King’s College, University of London.
Commencement is an important part of university life where we celebrate the culmination of hard work and achievement.
Commencement awards recognize individuals whose achievements have made significant contributions to the citizens of the State of New Hampshire or society as a whole.
