COMMENCEMENT SPEECH AT THE MASSACHUSETTS INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLOGY 1994-05-27

Date: 
Friday, 1994, May 27

President Vest, Members of the Corporation of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, distinguished members of the Faculty, Mayor Reeves, happy graduates, even happier parents, and others gathered here today:

I am pleased and honoured to be with you this morning.

MIT has shown a standard of excellence in education and research that sets a benchmark for universities everywhere. You who have been at the Institute for years may be excused if you take this in stride, but for me, coming here for the first time in several years, the energy of the place is palpable.
