Isiaah Crawford, Ph.D.

Every day at Puget Sound, bright and talented students from all across the country are discovering their passions and striving to make the world a better place. Faculty are working closely with students to develop their interests, explore new frontiers, and uncover new knowledge. We are creating new stories that are made possible by alumni, parents and friends who believe in the transformative power of a Puget Sound education.

The President's Leadership Society celebrates our shared commitment to this college that changes lives. As a member of the President's Leadership Society, you are part of a special group of our most generous donors to the Alumni, Parents, and Friends Funds. Your annual support benefits our entire community by making a Puget Sound education more enriching and affordable for all students.

Puget Sound would not be the college it is today without your commitment to student success. I am deeply grateful for your leadership and support.
