Spring Commencement

Two components are vital for a university: faculty and students. Commencement is a great opportunity for the faculty to recognize the students and acknowledge that they are the reason that we are here. It is also an opportunity to remind the administration and the board of trustees of the critical role of the faculty at the university. With these aims, I hope that all faculty will take the opportunity to attend the Spring Commencement ceremony.

The last day to order regalia is Wednesday, February 17, 2016. Click here to order regalia.

Following is the Spring Commencement Schedule:

Friday, April 29 at 10 a.m. – Doctoral Hooding and Master’s Recognition Ceremony
