Brandi Chastain SpeakerUSA soccer star Brandi Chastain will be honored at Santa Clara University’s 163rd undergraduate commencement ceremony on June 14. Her keynote address is being held in conjunction with the 50th anniversary of women’s athletics at Santa Clara which the University celebrates this year.

Chastain led Santa Clara to consecutive Final Four appearances in 1989 and 1990 before graduating in 1991. During her time at Santa Clara she also played for the USA National Women’s Soccer Team, setting the stage for her eventual rise to fame as one of the top women’s defenders in the world. In the 1999 FIFA Women’s World Cup Final Chastain scored the winning penalty kick goal to defeat China, noting it as the greatest moment of her life on the soccer field.

A champion of girls’ health, Chastain co-founded the Bay Area Women’s Sports Initiative in 2005 with a mission to create programs and partnerships through which women athletes bring health, hope, and wholeness to the community.

“Brandi epitomizes the world-class leadership and fortitude that every Bronco is capable of achieving,” says SCU President Michael Engh, S.J. “She is a dedicated and disciplined athlete who is also committed to strengthening communities by advocating for and empowering young girls.

With a degree in communications from Santa Clara, she returned to her alma mater in 1994 and served as an assistant coach for the Broncos until 2000. Currently she is in her fourth season as a volunteer assistant on the SCU coaching staff.

“I’m proud to be a part of such a strong legacy of women in sports at Santa Clara,” said Chastain. “To be recognized by a school that is deeply committed to empowering the underserved to succeed is an honor.”
