Commencement Week Events 2022


The Hooding Ceremony is a special recognition ceremony for candidates who have earned an advanced degree beyond the bachelor’s degree. The ceremony is a time when individual schools and programs can recognize the individual accomplishments and academic excellence of their graduates. During the ceremony, a faculty member places the hood over the head of the graduate, signifying their success in completing the requirements of the advanced degree. The hooding ceremony is in addition to and does not replace the college-wide commencement ceremony.
