"I am honored to have been asked to deliver the commencement address again this year," said Michael J. Collins. "UT's encouragement of science and innovation has resulted in a thriving chemistry and biochemistry program whose graduates rank at the top of their professions. I enjoyed speaking to this year's graduates and I look forward to the scientific discoveries and contributions they will make in the years to come."

Collins told the audience about his time at the University of Texas at Austin and how it helped shape his life as a chemist, entrepreneur, and business leader. He advised graduates to disregard the defeatists that have been predicting a worsening of the economy and a lack of opportunities.

"I predict we are on the verge of a major new era of growth for the US which will exceed anything we have seen in the past," said Collins, who believes the growth will be driven by continuing technological advancements in many fields including medicine, material science, and energy production and the ongoing globalization of business as new markets open up in developing countries. 

Collins also sees a coming revitalization of American manufacturing through entrepreneurial innovation and breakthroughs in technology.

"Science-based technology companies will continue to change the world. Chemistry and biochemistry will drive many of these companies," said Collins. "Your goal is to go forward and truly become our greatest generation ever."

Collins encouraged the graduates to find something they are passionate about and to pursue it with all their energy and determination.

"Whatever you decide to do, be the absolute best at it and keep challenging yourself," Collins encouraged. "Always be prepared, but be bold and think big."
