University President Shirley Tilghman on Tuesday addressed the graduates for the last time. Tilghman became the Ivy League school's first woman president in 2001. She's stepping down and will be replaced by Christopher Eisgruber in July.

Tilghman, Nobel Prize recipient Toni Morrison, architect Frank Gehry and three others were awarded honorary degrees.
