    Commencement 2009: Princess Loulwa al-Faisal al Saud

    Commencement 2009 speaker Princess Loulwa al-Faisal al Saud, daughter of Queen Effat and the late King Faisal, has championed women's education and worked on behalf of social and family welfare in the Middle East. During the 1990s, she worked with her mother supervising Dar Al-Hanan School, the first private high school for girls in Saudi Arabia. In 1999, she founded Effat College, now Effat University, the first college exclusively for women in Saudi Arabia. The Princess currently serves as vice-chairman of the Board of Trustees and general supervisor. She led all phases of the school's founding, raising funds, developing curriculum, and overseeing the construction and hiring of faculty and staff. She has served as a firm, but diplomatic, visionary in all phases of Effat's development. Notably, Mount Holyoke faculty members and administrators played a consultative role in Effat's development, and ties continue between the two schools today through their participation in Women's Education Worldwide, a global consortium of women's colleges.

    Commencement 2009: Clare Waterman '89

    Noting the abundance of groundbreaking biomedical discoveries since her graduation from Mount Holyoke 20 years ago, Waterman had a special message for those graduating with degrees in her field.

    "This great biomedical revolution will go down in history as having the same level of impact on our quality of life as did the great Industrial Revolution of the second half of the 1800s," she said. "To all of you in the class of 2009 embarking today on your postgraduate lives, you will enjoy the benefits of this great biomedical revolution as the healthiest, longest living, and, hopefully, happiest and most productive generation ever."
