MET Commencement 2014 and Speaker Dr. Bacevich
On Saturday, May 17, 2014, this year’s class of MET graduates received their diplomas. While the students are now moving on to the next steps in their lives, we won’t forget the great strides they made here at MET or how they’ve enriched this university.
Dean ad interim Tanya Zlateva introduced Commencement 2014 Speaker Andrew Bacevich, who spoke about his own daughter’s graduation and the struggles she encountered—a relatable tale for every graduate in the room.

Military Academy and received his Ph.D. in American diplomatic history from Princeton.
