Convocation Address

BAILEY ULBRICHT ’15
Founder of Paper Airplanes

Recipient of several academic and athletic awards as a Carleton student, Bailey Ulbricht is the founder of Paper Airplanes, a groundbreaking NGO that connects refugees around the world to college students in the United States for the purpose of educational and cultural exchange. Serving conflict-impacted students in need, the organization’s mission is to bridge gaps in language, higher education, and professional skills training by harnessing virtual learning technology and the benefits of peer-to-peer connections. After the program was mentioned by Samantha Power, the United States ambassador to the United Nations, in a February 2016 speech, Paper Airlines grew from a Carleton-focused project to one that now includes 250 tutors from more than 100 colleges and universities across the United States.
