Harvard President Drew Gilpin Faust
Tercentenary Theatre, Harvard University, Cambridge, Mass.
May 26, 2016
Greetings, alumni, graduates, families, and friends. It is such a pleasure to see you all here and offer congratulations on this day of celebration. I am in the unenviable role of warm-up act for one of the greatest storytellers of our - or any other - time. Nevertheless, my assignment is to offer a few reflections on this magnificent institution at this moment in its history. And what a moment it is!
