May 2013 Commencement Speaker
Renowned Political Strategist and Commentator
Vice Chair of Voter Registration and Participation, Democratic National Committee.
"Donna Brazile is hard to ignore, given her penchant for candor and 20 years' experience in the making of Democratic presidential candidates. She feels that getting a candidate elected takes the same artful mix as cooking up a fine gumbo. And her political opinions are as fiery as Tabasco."
–The New York Times
