Tom Brokaw, former anchor and managing editor of  "NBC Nightly News" who recently stepped down  after more than two decades in that position,  will deliver the main address at Dartmouth's 2005 Commencement exercises on Sun., June 12, on the Dartmouth Green.  Brokaw is also one of eight individuals who will receive honorary degrees at the event.

The academic procession to the Green begins at 9:30 a.m., and visitors are advised to be in  their seats by that time.  Commencement ceremonies begin at 10 a.m.

Other speakers for the event will include Dartmouth President James Wright and the valedictorian of the undergraduate senior class, who is announced the week of commencement, after final grades are calculated.

The College expects to award approximately 1,000 bachelor's degrees and approximately 500 master's and doctoral degrees in the Arts and Sciences and from the College's three professional schools:  Dartmouth Medical School, Thayer School of  Engineering and the Tuck School of Business.
