In 2019, Trina Sandschafer, AIA, was honored to deliver the convocation address at her alma mater, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, School of Architecture. The school has been following her story since. With no formal convocation this year, her words from the 2019 address are as appropriate now as then. Enjoy her full commencement address and read her engaging story in this special issue of Ricker Report. Congratulations to the class of 2020!
