Former secretary of state Hillary Rodham Clinton will receive the Radcliffe Medal during the Radcliffe Day luncheon on May 25. Another former secretary of state—Madeline Albright, the 2001 Radcliffe Medalist—will deliver a personal tribute, followed by a generation-bridging keynote conversation with Massachusetts attorney general Maura Healey ’92. 

“Hillary Clinton’s life and career are an inspiration to people around the world,” said dean of the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study Lizbeth Cohen in announcing the award. “We commend Secretary Clinton for her accomplishments in the public sphere as a champion for human rights and the welfare of all, as a skilled legislator, and as an advocate of American leadership to create a world in which states—to quote Secretary Clinton—‘have clear incentives to cooperate and live up to their responsibilities, as well as strong disincentives to…sow discord and division.’ We salute her commitment to a life of public service and the resilience it takes to live and work in the public eye.”
