U.S. News & World Report has an on-going list of speakers at this year's commencement ceremonies.

  1. Paul Johnson
  2. Malcolm Gladwell
  3. David Ulrich
  4. Tom Wolfe
  5. Mark Steyn
  6. Thomas Sowell
  7. Pat Caddell
  8. Dennis Prager
  9. Calvin Trillin
  10. Florence King
  11. Whit Stillman
  12. Lawrence Summers
  13. Meg Whitman
  14. Scott Adams
  15. Victor Davis Hanson
  16. Richard Rodriguez
  17. Steven Pressfield
