The newly-added end-of-calendar-year ceremony combines undergraduate and graduate education degree conferral into a single event on December 14. It will be held in John L. Hill Chapel at 3 p.m.
The combined ceremony enables December graduates to receive their degrees at the end of term rather than have to wait several months.
Commencement speaker will be alumna Granetta Bingham Blevins ’80, current trustee and former chair of the Board of Trustees, who has most recently served as acting president.
It is anticipated that there will be 19 Bachelors and 47 Masters Degrees conferred.
Beginning in May, 2014, there will be two separate ceremonies. The traditional undergraduate degree conferral will continue at 10 a.m. on a Saturday. Graduate education degrees will be conferred at a new and separate 3 p.m. ceremony that same day.
The August graduate education commencement has been discontinued.
