Facebook Exec Gives a DUKTalk

Tucker Bounds, one of six speakers featured at the recent DUKTalks event, shared his experience in both presidential politics and high-tech.

DUKTalks, which took place on Sept. 27, showcased the best of the College of Arts and Sciences, with faculty, alumni and student speakers sharing their individual paths of discovery.

Many thanks to our enthusiastic audience of 200 guests! Alumni, donors, students, faculty and staff turned up at the beautiful Robinson Theatre for an afternoon of brain candy and a special guest appearance by the Duck.

Bounds (02, Political Science) is now director of corporate communications at Facebook and was spokesperson for presidential candidate John MCain in 2008. In his DUKTalk, he reflects on a Freshman Seminar at the UO that set him on course for his diverse career: it’s all about community and communication. Watch the video!
