President Michael Crow introduces President of the United States, Barack Obama, as he addresses the 2009 graduating class with words of wisdom. President Obama warns about chasing titles in the midst of the financial crisis and encourages graduates to pursue passions in order to contribute to a better world. He teaches that a focus on outwards markers of success can lead to the complacency that has lead the world into the worst recession since the Great Depression. Instead, we should leave the legacy of innovation and discovery to advance research, as well as assume responsibility over the economic, social and cultural health of our world.
