Hard work has paid off and, it's been recognized, the front of your families, your friends and, supporters, and indeed, by the academic, staff here. We. Know just how much work you've put in to be here today and you can all feel justifiably. Proud. All. Of you have displayed determination. Dedication. Self-discipline. And effort and all, of you have taken a huge step toward, realizing your, dreams and today. In these magnificent surroundings, we. Celebrate, your achievements, well done. In. Just a few minutes time you would ask to join the academic, procession as it makes makes its way down the aisle this, invitation, symbolizes. The fact that you're no longer students. You're full members of the academic, community of Strathclyde, and it's, an important, moment for you all the. Class of 2019 is, graduating, at a time of considerable global. Change in Scotland. In the, UK and internationally. There's. No question, of the challenges, lie ahead for all of us but, as a member of the Strathclyde, family, you belong to a large and ever-growing worldwide, community, which. Are shared ethos, of tolerance, and understanding and. Desire. To make a positive difference. Whatever.
Dreams You're pursuing, in life remember, you possess the most valuable assets anyone, can have in today's world knowledge. And, the ability to innovate and, the, capacity, to use your talents for the good of society. As. Graduates of our socially progressive University. You, have a competitive, advantage have you been equipped with the skills know-how and life experiences. To positively, influence and shape the world around you, you. Know in Scotland, we are fortunate and having a higher education, system, that's the envy of the world our. Country, rightly, invests, in education for, all education. Broadens, the mind, it creeks opportunities. For individuals, and for societies, and it's, tough colliders, we, carry a sense of duty to use what we've learned wisely. And for the good of others and. That desire to make a positive impact. In the world comes naturally, to graduates, of this university we. Only have to look to, the achievements, of those who've gone before for, inspiration, to, join Anderson, our founder, who established, this University for, the good of mankind, to, the missionary, and Explorer, David Livingstone. To. John Logie Baird Lord wreath whose, work and television, brought, his visual marvels, that they could hardly have dreamt of and. In the present day we look to deem Elish Angeline a pioneer. In Scottish, justice, as the country's first female Solicitor. General and laters, first female Lord Advocate to. Baroness Helen little former. Secretary, of State for, Scotland and, UK. High Commission, of Australian, to, Baroness Annabel Goldie former MSP, and leader of the Conservatives. And to. Sir Tom Hunter, philanthropist. And one, of the most successful entrepreneurs. In Scottish, history. Now. I'm, sure you've received, lots, of advice and how, to make the best of your lives some. Of it you will rightly ignore. Some. Might stick with you but, you know most of all you're going to have to learn it for yourself. To. Reach this point in your lives today each of you will have travelled a different journey for. Some the path will have been relatively, easy for others, much, more difficult but. I'm certain, of one thing none. Of you would be here without the active support of your family, supporters, and friends they've, picked you up when you've been down they've, encouraged, you when you needed it and they're, here to support you once again today proudly, watching as you cross the stage with. Broad smiles, and I, noticed the odd tear, and I they're. Celebrating. Today with pride because. You carry with you their. Hopes and dreams their, confidence, that you can make this a better world, for. The past half hour or so their, applause has rung in your ears I'd, like to invite our graduates, now to show their appreciation for. The support of their family supporters. And Friends. We.

And guidance given, by our alumni helped to provide the first-class education, and student experience, you had at Strathclyde and, I now ask you to think of those who, are going to follow in your footsteps. I touched. Earlier on some of the key figures who've helped create the University, of Strathclyde, you. Can tell a lot about the values of an organization. By looking at its roots, Strathclyde. Traces, its lineage back to, 1796. When anderson, brought it into being it. Was the only Scottish university, founded, in the Enlightenment and embodying, enlightenment, principles of, Reason tolerance. And equality. Andersen. Believed in useful, learning. And. His commitment to taking knowledge and using for the greater good is the motivating, force which, gives Strathclyde, as momentum, today in, many, ways he was ahead of his time as. He advocated in the 18th century the, education. Of both men and women of all classes, today. This, vision is as important, as ever and as a socially, progressive University. We, want her students talents to redevelop, to the highest level, and the, talent pool to be as wide as it can be, we, now have targets, for recruiting students from disadvantaged. Areas, where, historically, few, people who stayed in education, after leaving school we've. Met and it did exceeded, these targets, enhancing. Our diverse, and vibrant student community, with. Many initiatives aimed at ensuring that ability, and willingness, to them and that.
And Not, personal, circumstances. Will determine access, to University, we. Are and. Always will be an international, University, our. Staff and student community, is drawn from more than 100. Nations and. We have alumni, and partners on every continent, that, ensures our outlook knowledge, and experience, are broad it's. Exactly, the shape a successful, university, should be, we're. In a place of innovation, seeking. Breakthroughs, which will address the most urgent challenges facing, the world today, new. And effective medicines, purposeful. Approaches, to tackling, climate change new, technologies, to meet the imperatives, of a rapidly changing world manufacture. Techniques, for, in-demand products. Informing. Policy that, addresses public needs and makes, for thriving, just societies. And offering. Insights, into complex, political. Economic, and social issues all. Of this our, groundbreaking, reserved.
