(Mahwah) – Carol Moseley Braun, who waged a campaign for the Democratic nomination in the 2004 Presidential race, will deliver the commencement address at Ramapo College of New Jersey’s 2004 ceremony Tuesday, May 25.
In her quest for the Democratic nomination, Moseley Braun qualified for more states’ ballots than any woman in the history of the Unites States. She has served as a United States Senator and U.S. Ambassador to New Zealand, as well as County Executive Officer, State Representative and Assistant United States Attorney. Her extensive legislative record reflects a commitment to social justice, fiscal prudence and good government. The hallmark of her public service has been a dedication to the harmony of the whole community, working to build an inclusive society that taps the talent of all people.
The commencement speaker holds a B.A. from the University of Illinois and a law degree from the University of Chicago. As an Assistant United States Attorney, she worked primarily in the civil and appellate law areas, and tried cases of national importance. Her work in housing, health policy and environmental law won her the Attorney General’s Special Achievement Award, her first public service recognition. Since returning in 2001 from her ambassadorial posting, she has taught law and political science at Morris Brown College and DePaul University, along with maintaining a business law practice and business consultancy in Chicago.
