“COMMENCEMENT PROGRAM OF THE COOPER UNION FOR THE ADVANCEMENT OF SCIENCE AND ART ”
May 23, 2006

Swami Adiswarananda was invited to give the Invocation at the Commencement in which former U.S. President William Clinton was Keynote Speaker. Following an impressive and colorful procession of the distinguished faculty, guest speakers, and students, Swami Adiswarananda opened the Commencement with an inspiring and universal Vedic Prayer for world peace and spiritual unity. Former American President William Jefferson Clinton gave the keynote address. The ceremonies concluded with the presentation of degrees to the graduating class of 400 honor students. Over 1,000 attended the event in the historic Great Hall of the Cooper Union, a hall noted for the many U.S. Presidents who spoke there, including President Abraham Lincoln, who gave one of his most notable addresses in the Great Hall.
