A Letter from President Tessier-Lavigne

President Tessier-Lavigne

To the Graduates of the Class of 2018, their parents, families and friends:

Congratulations! I am pleased to invite you to Stanford University’s 127th Commencement Weekend. This exciting weekend is our opportunity to honor and celebrate our graduates and to thank all of you – parents, family members and friends – for your support and confidence. We look forward to celebrating with you and sharing in the traditions that make Commencement Weekend uniquely Stanford.

Commencement marks both a completion and a beginning. We encourage our alumni and their families to remain involved in the life of the university. Near and far, you are always a member of the Stanford family.


Marc Tessier-Lavigne
