From the Stanford Report:

Dana Gioia, chairman of the National Endowment for the Arts, delivered the 2007 Commencement address June 17 in Stanford Stadium. He said the dominance of celebrities and entertainment has had significant cultural fallout, most notably “how few possible role models we offer the young.”
