Message to the Class of 2024

Class of 2024, congratulations. Everyone on this stage — our administrators, faculty leaders and trustees — and everyone who showed up to support you today — all stand in awe of what you’ve overcome as a class to make it to this milestone.

Our path forward

WashU has a long, proud history of encouraging and supporting free expression.  It is a defining characteristic of who we are as an academic institution.  Our commitment is firm; however, it does have its limits.  It always has.
