Batten Grad 2
May 23, 2022

Celebrating Batten’s Class of 2022

From Valedictory Exercises Friday afternoon to Batten’s signature Academic Regalia Ceremony on Saturday and Final Exercises on Sunday, this weekend marked the first return to the full custom of in-person UVA graduation since 2019.

After receiving his undergraduate degree from George Washington University, Batten student Cam Morales (MPP ’22) landed a job with renowned international law firm Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld, where he worked as a public policy specialist. While the work was immensely satisfying, he felt like something was missing. That led him on the path to the Batten School’s unique graduate program.
