The School of Theology and Religious Studies' 2011 Commencement Excercises stands out as having one of the largest number of Ph.D. graduates in the School's history. The final Commencement overseen by Dean Msgr. Kevin Irwin, over twenty five students received Ph.D.s. The School congratulates all of it's graduating students and thanks all of it's professors who put in so much work, not only teaching, but also directing and reading student dissertations. The School also thanks all of those colleagues from other schools who graciously and enthusiastically volunteered to serve on student dissertation defense committees; we could not have accomplished all this without you.
