Apple CEO Tim Cook to Deliver Commencement Speech to Tulane Graduates in May
Apple CEO Tim Cook is set to deliver the keynote address to Tulane graduates at the university's 2019 commencement event, set to take place on May 18 in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome, the university announced today.
Tulane University shared the news with students through a cute video that spelled out Cook's visit in emoji.
Tulane President Mike Fitts said that Cook represents the "kind of success" that the university hopes that all graduates can attain.
"At Tulane, we are committed to addressing global challenges, giving back to our community and always acting with integrity and wisdom. Tim shows us how we can incorporate these values into life beyond graduation, and we are thrilled to have him as part of our commencement celebration."
Cook said that he "can't wait" to celebrate alongside new Tulane graduates later this year.
"Tulane's dedication to its students and the diverse community around them is an awesome example of the lessons we all learn when we come together, recognize our responsibilities to each other and give back," said Cook. "At Apple we believe that education is a powerful equalizing force, and I can't wait to celebrate alongside this year's students who have worked hard, followed their passions and who stand ready to change the world."
Cook has given commencement addresses at multiple universities over the years, including his alma mater Auburn University, Duke University, George Washington University, and MIT.
