The University of Wisconsin-Manitowoc will hold its spring Commencement ceremony at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, May 22, in the University Theatre, 705 Viebahn St., Manitowoc.
Recently retired Professor of Philosophy Alan White, Ph.D., is the commencement speaker. He taught students on the UW-Manitowoc campus for nearly 37 years before retiring in 2017. His wide range of courses included Biomedical Ethics, Philosophy of Religion, Epistemology and Philosophy of Science.
During his tenure, White was named Wisconsin Professor of the Year by the Carnegie/CASE Foundation and he received the UW Colleges Chancellor’s Award for Excellence. He earned his doctorate at the University of Tennessee in Knoxville. White published numerous articles in research journals on topics including the philosophy of time, and conducted extensive research on pedagogy—the method and practice of teaching.
UW-Manitowoc graduates at the spring Commencement ceremony will be awarded the Associate of Arts and Science Degree.
A reception for graduates and their families will be held in the commons following the ceremony.
