John W. Boyer, Dean of the College, will introduce the speaker, Thomas F. Rosenbaum, Provost of the University and the John T. Wilson Distinguished Service Professor in Physics. The Aims of Education Address is a celebrated tradition in which a faculty member addresses the entering class on the unique aims of liberal education at the University. A bookend to this address is the Remains of Education Address that takes place during Senior Week, for which the graduating class will select a faculty member to speak about what they have gained from their education, and what they can take with them as they enter the "real" world.
