Commencement 2015

Darlene Love to present Commencement Address


love,-darlene_web.jpgDarlene Love
, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame member who began her career as a backup singer in the 1960s and found rebirth as a star in her own right decades later, will present the Commencement Address at Providence College’s Ninety-Seventh Commencement Exercises on Sunday, May 17.

The ceremony will begin at 11 a.m. at the Dunkin’ Donuts Center in Providence.

Love is one of five honorary degree recipients. The others are Dr. Henry C. Foley ’77, executive vice president for academic affairs at the University of Missouri System; Rev. Gustavo Gutiérrez, O.P., a Dominican priest credited with coining the term “liberation theology” to describe how Christians should respond to governments and social systems that oppress the poor; Jane Lunin Perel, a poet who is professor emerita of English and women’s studies at PC and co-founder of its Women’s Studies Program; and Kevin C. Phelan ’66, a Boston businessman, community leader, and long-time PC trustee.
