Husband and wife philanthropists Bill and Melinda Gates will speak at Stanford University Commencement Sunday, June 15.

In addition to the Gateses, Stanford President John Hennessey will address graduates, and awards for outstanding leadership and teaching will be presented to students, faculty and staff.
Stadium gates will open at 8 a.m.; a procession of graduates begins at 9:30 a.m. and the ceremony begins at 10 a.m., ending by 11:30.
Attendees are advised to dress for heat, with hats, visors and sun block highly recommended. Umbrellas will not be permitted as they block the view of other guests. Bags may be subject to search at the stadium entrance, with no large items such as banners, posters or megaphones allowed.
