Duke University announced this weekend that Tim Cook will be delivering the 2018 commencement address at Wallace Wade Stadium. As part of their announcement, Duke University created a short video featuring Animoji to hype the big reveal.
Cook has served on Duke’s Board of Trustees since 2015, after he had earned his MBA from Duke’s Fuqua School of Business in 1988.
The ceremony will take place May 13, on the university’s campus in Durham, North Carolina.
“I am absolutely delighted that Tim Cook will be returning to campus as this spring’s commencement speaker,” said [Duke President Vincent E.] Price. “Throughout his career, Tim has embodied Duke’s values of innovation and service to society, whether through his contributions to Apple’s groundbreaking technology or his advocacy for social justice. I can imagine no better person, and no bigger Duke fan, to inspire the Class of 2018.”
