Alumna and research professor of International Development, Community and Environment at Clark University Cynthia Enloe '60 spoke to the graduates about connections; their connections to the past, those present, and to those they may not know. "A connection should probably make you feel a little uneasy. Because if you make a connection it means you're beginning to take responsibility for that person's life. It means that that person is somehow affecting your life, but you're also affecting their life."
