Susan Rice Named 2010 Commencement Speaker

Posted by at 11:28AM

In an email earlier today, Senior Class Presidents revealed that Susan Rice (’86) will be responsible for imparting words of wisdom to the Class of 2010 on their graduation day. A Stanford graduate herself, Rice serves as the newly-appointed U.S. Ambassador to the UN, a member of Obama’s Cabinet, and a national security advisor. Not to mention she can lay claim to the illustrious Rhodes and Truman Scholarships.
Also named in the email were Debra Satz, a Stanford professor of in the department of philosophy, as Senior Class Day Speaker, and Eboo Patel, a member of Obama’s Advisory Council on Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships, as Baccalaureate Ceremony speaker.
Perhaps not the star-studded affair of the Oprah Winfrey days, the 2010 speaker line-up boasts some pretty accomplished individuals. Let’s hope they can give us all – and particularly the class of 2010 – some good advice about facing the “real world.” Best of luck Oh-ten.
