Joyner hosts "The Tom Joyner Morning Show," which is syndicated, and he is a longtime supporter of historically black colleges and universities.
"Few people in the United States have demonstrated greater appreciation and support for African-American institutions of higher learning than has Tom Joyner," said NCCU Chancellor Charlie Nelms. "In light of the successes and challenges that NCCU has faced in its 100-year history, I think it's particularly appropriate that someone with Joyner's love for higher education will speak to our graduates on the commencement of our Centennial Class."
Commencement will be held at 8 a.m. on May 15 in the O'Kelly-Riddick Stadium.
NCCU will graduate about 800 students at its 115th commencement.
