University of Puget Sound
NEWS & INFORMATION FOR THE GRADUATING CLASS OF 2010
Global Health Innovator to Give
2010 Commencement Address
Commencement 2010 Newsletter
The University of Puget
Sound is pleased to
announce that Scott Jackson
’80 will be this year’s
Commencement Speaker.
Jackson is Vice President
of PATH, an international
nonprofit organization that
creates sustainable, culturally
relevant solutions that enable
communities worldwide to
break longstanding cycles of
poor health.
“Scott Jackson’s personal and
professional commitment
to transforming the world
into a more humane and
healthy place through
creative collaboration and
technological innovation inspires us all,” says President Ronald R.
Thomas. “He will undoubtedly deliver a memorable message to
our graduates that will inspire them as much as he was inspired by
his experience here thirty years ago.”
PATH (originally, Program for Appropriate Technology in
Health) operates under a model of collaboration and consists
of 50 US charities that touch almost every developing country
in the world through disaster relief, education, health training
and economic programs that promote self-sufficiency. The
organization has received broad recognition, including the
2009 Conrad N. Hilton Humanitarian Prize, the world’s
largest humanitarian award honoring the charitable or
nongovernmental organization that has made extraordinary
contributions toward alleviating human suffering.
At PATH, Jackson is responsible for maximizing the visibility of
PATH’s work and representing the organization and its mission
internationally. As Vice President of External Relations, he leads
efforts to raise more than $250 million a year to address major
world health issues through PATH. Due to his leadership, PATH
is now the largest grant recipient from the Gates Foundation.
In addition to his critical role with PATH, Jackson is an active
member of Rotary International and serves on several national
boards, including Global Impact, and was a founding member
of the management committee for ONE, the campaign to make
poverty history.
Jackson is a member of the Puget Sound Class of 1980 and
served as ASUPS vice president and then president. He majored
in history, and was a Fred S. Wyatt Scholar elected to Phi Kappa
Phi and Mortar Board. After his graduation from Puget Sound,
Scott was a Rotary Scholar, earned an MBA at the University
of Edinburgh, and completed a program in organizational
development at Harvard Business School. He continued his
service to Puget Sound beyond graduation as a member of the
Puget Sound Associates, the Business Board of visitors, as an
annual fund class agent, a mentor in the Business Leadership
Program, and a participant in the Rogers Chair International
Trade Colloquium in 1990.
Prior to joining PATH, Jackson served as senior vice president for
World Vision U.S. There, Jackson led as many as 200 employees
and managed a fundraising portfolio of more than $60 million.
As one of many accomplishments, he oversaw the successful HIV/
AIDS advocacy and fundraising “Hope Initiative” tour to 18 cities
across the U.S. Before joining World Vision, Jackson was president
of two public affairs and marketing companies, APCO Seattle and
TRADEC Trade and Development Consortium.
Jackson credits Puget Sound with profoundly redirecting the
course of his life and looks forward to addressing the graduating
class. Spring 2010 will be the 30th anniversary of Jackson’s
graduation from Puget Sound.

Commencement Ceremony
Sunday, May 16, 2– 4:30 p.m., Baker Stadium
Preparing for graduation
Before the arrival of Commencement Weekend, resources and
services are available to assist you in preparing for graduation:
Grad Fair
Puget Sound Grad Fair begins with a resource fair on March
23 and 24, from noon to 4 p.m., in Wheelock Student Center.
In a festive setting, you can order your caps and gowns, take
professional graduation portraits, and access university personnel
and resources in preparation for the next phase of life. Enjoy treats,
enter a drawing for prizes by visiting at least half of the resource
fair tables, and register for LOGGER[net], the alumni online
community. Grad Fair concludes on March 25, with Senior Night,
a party hosted by the Student Alumni Association.
Order your cap and gown
All graduates participating in the Commencement Ceremony
must wear approved academic regalia. You can order your cap,
gown, and hood one of three ways: directly from a Jostens
representative at Grad Fair on March 23 and 24, online at www.
jostens.com/college, or by phone at 800.854.7464. All regalia
orders must be made on or before March 31. A late fee of $10
will be applied to all orders received after March 31. If you have
any trouble placing your regalia order, please contact Jostens
customer service at 800.448.2173.
All graduates will receive reminder e-mail messages noting
instructions and deadlines for placing regalia orders. Gowns will be
rented; however, graduates keep the cap and tassel as mementos of
the occasion. Master’s and D.P.T. graduates also keep their hoods.
Distribution
Caps and gowns will be distributed on Tuesday and Wednesday,
May 11 and 12, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., in Wheelock Student
Center, Room 101. A family member or friend can pick up
the regalia for a graduate who cannot attend during these
distribution hours. A note of pick-up approval from the
graduate, or a receipt of the rental transaction is required.
A last-chance distribution is scheduled for Sunday, May 16, from
11 a.m. to 1 p.m., in front of Memorial Fieldhouse. Master’s
and D.P.T. graduates will receive their hoods during their
departments’ hooding ceremonies. Please see page 6 for hooding
ceremony times and locations.
Gown return
Please return your rental gown immediately following the
ceremony. Look for the “return gowns here” signs posted in and
just outside of Baker Stadium.

Commencement Ceremony details
Baker Stadium and Seating
Family and friends should arrive at Baker Stadium between noon
and 2 p.m., on Sunday, May 16. Tickets are not required to attend

first-come, first-served. Seats may not be reserved in advance.
Washington weather, rain or shine!
University of Puget Sound holds the Commencement Ceremony
outdoors in celebration of the striking Pacific Northwest
environment. Like the graduating classes before you, you might
come to remember graduation in terms of the weather. The Class
of 2010 could hold
the record for the
rainiest, hottest,
or most beautiful
Commencement
Ceremony, so
make sure you and
your guests dress
for unpredictable
weather. There
is no protection
from the wind, sun, or rain; bring sunscreen, sunglasses, caps,
ponchos, and umbrellas. If rain is predicted, graduates and
guests seated on Peyton Field will be provided with ponchos.
Guests seated in the covered stadium bleachers should come
prepared for inclement weather.
Considerations for guests with disabilities
Designated, ground-level seating will be available for guests
with disabilities; Commencement ushers will gladly assist guests
in need of these seating accommodations. Wheelchairs may
be rented for use during Commencement Weekend from the
following Tacoma locations:
Care Medical Equipment Inc. Discount Medical

253.474.1774 253.752.7900
The ceremony will be interpreted in American Sign Language,
and a limited number of assisted-listening devices are available.
Please contact the Office of Alumni and Parent Relations at
