United States President Barack Obama visits MIT

MIT had the honor of a presidential visit on Oct. 23, 2009. Speaking at Kresge Auditorium, US President Barack Obama delivered a speech that addressed American leadership and clean energy research. The talk came as Congress prepared for hearings on clean energy legislation. Prior to speaking in Kresge, the president toured research labs on campus. Noting the work of the MIT Energy Initiative to invent a sustainable energy future, President Obama explained that MIT was a logical choice for his visit.
