Steve Ballmer to be University of Washington commencement speaker

Former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer will be the speaker at the University of Washington commencement ceremony on June 14.

“Steve Ballmer is one of a handful of visionary technology leaders who over the past several decades have had a dramatic impact on how we live and work,” UW President Michael Young said in the announcement from the university. “I’m sure he will have some interesting things to say to our students as they get ready to make their own marks upon the world just as he did but in ways we can hardly imagine.”

Ballmer, who stepped down earlier this year after 14 years as Microsoft CEO, was the commencement speaker three years ago for University of Southern California.

Last year’s UW commencement speaker was former ambassador and former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman.

The UW expects about 5,000 students and 40,000 family members and friends  to attend the 139th  commencement ceremonies, which will take place at Husky Stadium. About 12,000 degrees will be awarded.
