All students, all schools, all degrees
The University’s Commencement ceremony will take place on Friday, May 13, 2022 at 11 a.m. The ceremony—which will mark the conferral of academic degrees for all undergraduate and graduate students—will be at Fauver Stadium at the Brian F. Prince Athletic Complex on the River Campus. A livestream of the Commencement ceremony also will be available. Graduates will be allowed to invite a limited number of guests to the ceremony.
The ceremony will include processions of students in regalia, faculty representatives, and a platform party of guests and dignitaries. Speakers will include President Sarah Mangelsdorf, a representative of the University’s Board of Trustees, and a student representative. A Commencement speaker, who will be selected later this spring, will also address graduates. University honorees will be announced later this semester.
The ceremony kicks off a weekend of celebratory events for graduates, their families and friends, faculty, and staff, including ceremonies for schools and departments, where each student will be recognized.
