Dafoe To Give UW-Milwaukee Speech

Oscar-nominated actor Willem Dafoe will be coming home to UW-Milwaukee to give the commencement speech this year.

Dafoe will give the speech on May 22, the same day he’ll be accepting an honorary Doctor of the Arts.

Dafoe attended UW-Milwaukee in 1973 and 1974 before leaving to work with the independent experimental Theater X. Dafoe has been nominated for an Academy Award 4 times and has been in over 100 films in his career. He calls his time at UW-M a formative and positive experience.
