Ripon College will host its 145th commencement Sunday, May 15 at 1:30 p.m. on the Harwood Memorial Union lawn.

The 2011 theme is “ethics,” and echoes Ripon College’s dedication to making — and teaching — ethical decisions within and beyond its campus.

Two honored guests will share the stage with 2011 graduates.

Kenneth R. Feinberg is the commencement speaker and honorary degree recipient.

An attorney by trade, Feinberg has been key to resolving many of the nation’s problems and well-known disputes.

He is best known for serving as the special master of the Federal September 11th Victim Compensation Fund of 2001, for which he reached out to all those who qualified to file a claim, evaluated applications, determined appropriate compensation and disseminated awards.
