Announcer: Ladies and gentlemen the President of New York University Andrew Hamilton. Andrew Hamilton: Good morning. Good morning ladies and gentlemen as president of NYU I am delighted to welcome you all and to congratulate the Class of 2018 on this very special day but first of all I need your indulgence for a few moments I have a presidential tweet to send out. There you've got it. Ladies and gentlemen the largest crowd ever despite the rain at an NYU graduation and everyone, everyone in this stadium knows well that a little bit of rain will not dampen violet pride at NYU. Today as I stand on second base at Yankee Stadium I look out on a brilliant sea of violet and a few ponchos and umbrellas as well and I catch that scent of hot dog and popcorn and what comes to my mind as it does so often at this remarkable university is only at NYU. So ladies and gentlemen let me throw out the first pitch friends, families, colleagues would you please all join me in congratulating our graduates for their wonderful achievements while they've been at NYU. (cheering and clapping) And now Class of 2018 you've not made it to this point on your own you've had the love and the support of many. I'm now going to ask you to look around to try to connect to make eye contact with your loved ones. If you can't do that make eye contact with somebody else's loved ones and show your thanks to those who've helped you to you at this place. (cheering and clapping) And even as we justly and proudly celebrate your achievements today graduates, we also find ourselves at a pivotal moment for higher education. A college education in the U.S. long a national aspiration internationally seen as a gold standard and nowadays a near necessity for a prosperous life this has come to be doubted in a way I don't believe any of us could have predicted. The polls tell us that increasing numbers of Americans view higher education with skepticism or even contempt. Some of the fault for this lies within universities ourselves the price of a degree has escalated sharply a trend we are working hard to address at NYU and there is understandable anxiety about how competitive the admissions process at top universities like NYU has become and some of the fault is due to growing anti- intellectualism indeed anti-factualism in our public discourse still others view college campuses as outposts of elites or bastions of ideology in thinking about these disturbing trends I was reminded of a story about the great Scottish author Robert Louis Stevenson. Each night growing up in 19th century Scotland he used to watch the Lamplighter make his way down the street with a ladder and a torch lighting the streetlights for the night. One evening the story goes Robert was asked what he was looking at and he exclaimed, "Look at that man he is punching holes in the darkness." Well that's what universities do. They punch holes in the darkness. Universities shed light on the truth by an unearthing facts and conducting evidence-based research. They illuminate the human experience through art and literature.They offer insight into the present by examining the past. They light the way towards the future by nurturing deep and nuanced thinkers, well-rounded leaders, and skilled principled professionals. They spread the light of understanding by opening up to new perspectives and new cultures. Every day universities punch holes through the darkness of ignorance, small mindedness, and injustice. It is well established that a college education leads to significantly higher earnings but I would argue that the true value of universities extends far beyond financial gain. They are essential to creating informed citizens who sustain healthy democracies. They foster compassion and peace. They help keep the world on a path no matter how winding and rocky towards progress but don't take my word for it every day it is NYU students themselves who demonstrate the transformative power of a college education and in particular an NYU education. Consider just a few examples from today's graduating class of 2018. One student who will receive his MFA in film today was mentored by NYU professor Spike Lee. This student wrote and directed a short film about the lynching of Emmitt Till in 1955. It not only played in theaters across the country it was also nominated for a 2018 Academy Award. (cheering and clapping) Another student came to NYU after serving nearly three decades as a nurse in the U.S. Navy. She is reserving she is receiving a double master's in public administration and public health today and she hopes to apply her expertise to make an impact on the health of the military veteran community. A mechanical engineering major graduating today has been leading a team of students who have developed a prototype to transport goods at high speed through Hyperloop technology. They were one of a few select teams chosen to move on to the second phase of a competition sponsored by SpaceX this summer and today with us ladies and gentlemen there is a very special group of graduates. Four out of the five inuagural graduates of NYU's prison education program (cheering and clapping). These four students earned associate degrees while incarcerated at Wallkill Correctional Facility and as one of those graduates put it after 28 years on this earth I finally know the point of education and I'm addicted to it. All of the students that I've described today come from different backgrounds and have different interests but they share one thing in common a college education and they are changing the world. My words will be lost after today but you members of the Class of 2018 you are the proof of the value of higher education as you go on to your next endeavors you are the best ambassadors for higher learning each and every one of you is punching your own hole in the darkness. To the parents and loved ones here today thank you for trusting us with your sons and daughters education. They are stars. They have shined for us as they have for you and we are now all basking in their glow. To everyone in the Class of 2018 know that we are immensely proud of your talent, of your achievements, and we are proud of your spirit. Come back and see us often and from everyone at NYU we send you our heartiest congratulations well done class of 2018! (cheering and clapping)
