Congratulations to Manchester University Class of 2015

Manchester University Mission Statement

Manchester University respects the infinite worth of every individual and graduates persons of ability and conviction who draw upon their education and faith to lead principled, productive, and compassionate lives that improve the human condition.

Manchester University honored its 252 newest alumni on Sunday, May 17.

President Dave McFadden introduced the 2015 graduates, first taking a few moments to thank all who helped them get to this day.

"In becoming college graduates, you have fulfilled a goal that many people around the world only dream of. We are proud of you and we celebrate with you," McFadden said. This is his first Commencement ceremony as president of the University.

The University honored Stanley J. Noffsinger, general secretary of the Church of the Brethren, with the degree of Doctor of Humane Letters honoris causa.

"We recognize you for your tireless pursuit of peace and justice in a broken world and for your deep faith in the infinite worth of every person," McFadden said to Noffsinger. "Without desire for fame, you have encouraged dialogue between people of differences and given hope to the displaced, the dispossessed and the discouraged."

The Commencement speaker, Noffsinger continued the theme of what a privilege it is to become a college graduate, describing how the Boko Haram took over Kulp Bible College in Nigeria last fall and that those students are still waiting to return, and how they face great peril in pursuit of education.

Noffsinger encouraged graduates to take up the mantle of responsibility.

"This is a shrinking world," he said, "and you have accountability to it."
