what the best commencement speeches teach us about failure


image by angelica alzona/gmg.if there’s one common thread amongst some of the best college commencement speeches out there, it’s failure. college, it turns out, is easy compared to the rest of life, and to prepare you for that, everyone from denzel washington to jk rowling have dedicated their time in front of graduates to help us all remember that.jk rowling: “failure meant stripping away the inessential”when you think about an author like jk rowling, the first word that comes to your mind is probably not “failure,” but that’s exactly what she dedicated her 2008 commencement speech at harvard to. rowling even acknowledges the absurdity of such a topic given the privilege that comes from graduating at a university like harvard, “indeed, your conception of failure might not be too far from

“now all i have to do is take a deep breath, squint at the red banners and convince myself that i am at the world’s largest gryffindor reunion,” said j.k. rowling, as she addressed the crowd at harvard’s 2008 commencement.each year, colleges and universities across the country invite notable figures like rowling to attend their graduation ceremonies and address their graduating cl es. it seems like everyone from madeleine albright to kermit the frog has delivered a commencement address. with graduation only months away, schools have already begun to announce their commencement speakers for the cl of 2017. here are some notable confirmed graduation speakers so far.wellesley college: former secretary of state hillary clintonin may, former secretary of state hillary clinton will return to her

mark zuckerberg is giving the 2017 harvard commencement address


why it matters to you you don't necessarily have to go to college to achieve success -- and people like mark zuckerberg and bill gates prove that.who says you have to go to college to get a degree? after dropping out of harvard university 12 years ago, mark zuckerberg has announced that he will be finally getting his college degree — an honorary degree that he will receive as part of his presentation of the commencement address to harvard’s class of 2017.the news was first announced through a post on harvard’s website, however it was followed by a whimsical and completely cringe-worthy video on zuckerberg’s facebook page — which also starred none other than bill gates, who gave the commencement address at harvard back in 2007. incidentally, zuckerberg attended that address — at the time, h






are college campuses growing more intolerant of free speech? the numbers say no.


moreover, not every protest results in a speaker’s invitation being withdrawn. only 24 “disinvitations” in 2016 resulted in a true withdrawn invitation; in fire’s full database of 331 incidents going back to 2000, only 145 were true disinvitations. is a protest that fails to result in a withdrawn invitation a blow against free speech? hardly. in many if not most cases, it’s an expression of free speech. or is an invitation to give a talk on campus supposed to be immune from comment once it’s tendered?the biggest flaw of the fire database is its conflation of commencements with campus talks and debates. as anyone knows who has spent even a semester on campus, one of these things is not like the others. commencements account for about 40% of the incidents in fire’s database of 331 “disinvita
