Some interesting commencement speakers not on the list:

  • Harvard – J.K. Rowling (author of the Harry Potter series)
  • Penn – Michael Bloomberg (mayor of New York City, businessman)
  • Stanford – Oprah Winfrey (media mogul, philanthropist)
  • Yale – Tony Blair (former British prime minister)
  • Princeton – Stephen Colbert (comedian, actor, writer)
  • MIT – Muhammad Yunus (banker, economist, 2006 Nobel Peace Prize recipient)

Anyways, the database is pretty comprehensive. Enjoy.
