Special podcasts feature Convocation weekend speakers

In celebration of the University of Chicago’s 531st Convocation, the UChicago Podcast Network presents two special podcasts featuring student and faculty speakers and invited Class Day speaker Valerie Jarrett.

On the first podcast, graduate Andrea Popova sits down with Paul M. Rand, UChicago vice president of communications and host of the Big Brains podcast, to talk about her experience at UChicago and what inspired her to address the Class of 2018.

Following the conversation you can listen to all three UChicago student speeches in their entirety.

On the second podcast, listen to the full speeches given by Jarrett, distinguished senior fellow in the University of Chicago Law School and former senior adviser to President Obama; and Marianne Bertrand, the Chris P. Dialynas Distinguished Service Professor of Economics at the University of Chicago Booth School of Business.
