2010 Commencement

In his keynote address, Curt Schilling—retired Red Sox pitcher, philanthropist, and video game development company founder— urged the Class of 2010 to “make a positive impact on the world.”

Indeed, WPI graduates are well positioned to do just that.

Schilling spoke during WPI's 142nd Commencement in May, when 1,140 students received bachelor's, master's, and PhD degrees—the largest graduating class in the university's history.

Honorary degrees were conferred upon Schilling, Clark University President John Bassett (who received WPI's first honorary Doctorate of Humane Letters), Angela Belcher, Germehausen Professor of Materials Science and Engineering and Biological Engineering at MIT, and Gordon B. Lankton, WPI Trustee emeritus and chairman of Nypro Inc.
