About the Keynote Speaker

This year’s commencement keynote speaker is Dr. Gerson Moreno-Riaño, president of Cornerstone University. For decades, Dr. Moreno-Riaño has been a champion for Christian higher education. He began his teaching career at Cedarville University and joined the academic leadership at Regent University before being inaugurated as Cornerstone University’s 13th president on Oct. 22, 2021. Throughout his career, Dr. Moreno-Riaño has advocated for and worked hard to create a college experience rooted in biblical truth and provides academically excellent programs to see the greatest impact in our world for Christ. He is honored to be presiding over his first commencement ceremony at CU and thrilled to send off this next generation of CU graduates into their callings.


Tickets are not required for our commencement events this year, and all events are free of charge.
