VICE President Leni Robredo will be the speaker at the graduation rites of the Ateneo de Manila University, a school official said.

The commencement exercises will be held on August 27, 2022 with the theme “Hinubog ng mapanghamong panahon, magmahal at magtaya nang may tapang at pag-asa.”

“Assuming that Covid19 alert levels do not worsen and that government regulations would allow large gatherings, all graduation events will be held onsite at the Ateneo Junior High School Covered Courts,” Dr. Maria Luz C. Vilches, vice president for the Loyola Schools, said.

“We hope that our students will be inspired by Vice President Robredo’s example of courage, hope and love for the nation,” she added.

This will be ADMU’s first physical commencement rites in two years, having held them virtually in 2020 and 2021 because of the pandemic.

Robredo last visited the university on May 13 for her thanksgiving rally after losing to President-elect Ferdinand Bongbong Marcos Jr.

During the event, Robredo rallied her supporters to accept the results of the May 9 elections, but made a firm vow to lead the fight against disinformation and lies.
