President Barack Obama to Deliver Commencement Address at Rutgers University-New Brunswick

Thursday, April 14, 2016

NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J. – U.S. President Barack Obama will deliver remarks to more than 12,000 graduating students and 40,000 guests at the university’s 250th anniversary commencement ceremony May 15 on the New Brunswick Campus.

“We are delighted that President Obama has chosen to address our graduates at this year’s historic commencement,” said Rutgers University President Robert Barchi.

“This is the first time in Rutgers University’s history that a sitting president has agreed to speak at commencement,” said Barchi. “President Obama’s decision is a testament to the enthusiastic efforts of Rutgers students, faculty, staff and alumni, as well as members of the New Jersey Congressional Delegation, who sent numerous messages to the White House urging the president to join our 250th anniversary graduation ceremony,” he added.
