Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala MCP ’78, PhD ’81, director-general of the World Trade Organization (WTO), will address the Class of 2022 at MIT’s Commencement exercises, reports the AP. Okonjo-Iweala, the first woman and first African to lead the WTO, noted that: “From the warm and caring welcome of the International Students Office on my first day of graduate school in 1976, to my tough but equally caring doctoral dissertation committee that propelled me to graduation in 1981, my memories of my time at MIT are spectacularly positive.”


BostInno reporter Lauren Landry writes that MIT has received one of the largest gifts in the school’s history from alumnus Samuel Tak Lee. The gift will be used to create a lab dedicated to socially responsible and sustainable real estate development, with a focus on China.
