Name Pronunciation

We are partnering with Name-Coach for providing your name pronunciation for Commencement. On the Name-Coach platform students can record and indicate phonetic pronunciation of their name.

Students will receive an email from no-reply@name-coach.com mid-March with a unique link for them to use to provide their name pronunciation.

If you have difficulty recording your name, contact the events office at 503.943.1901 or commencement@up.edu.  


Note to all students, their families and guests: Please know that every effort is made to ensure that names are pronounced properly at Commencement. The name pronunciation program, though helpful, is not a guarantee that all names will be pronounced correctly. Readers try their best and understand the importance of the occasion for the students and their families and guests.
