2023 Spring Commencement Moves Indoors to Ensure Safety Amid Inclement Weather

Due to inclement weather and for the safety of our graduates, their families and friends, we are implementing our inclement weather plan and moving the 2023 Spring Commencement indoors. Commencement rehearsal and ceremony will be held in Davey L. Whitney HPER Complex on the Lorman campus.

Rehearsal will take place on Friday, May 12, at 10:00 a.m. The commencement ceremony will be held Saturday, May 13, at 9:00 a.m.; graduates should arrive at the Whitney Complex at 7:30 a.m. for the lineup. The Ray Johnson Auditorium Extension and the James L. Bolden Campus Union Ballroom are designated as overflow areas.

Each graduate (including the Golden Class) will be issued (5) tickets as they collect their cap and gown. As we look toward Commencement and the beginning of summer, we want to acknowledge all of our graduates’ hard work and dedication and salute them on a job well done.
