The university’s general commencement ceremony is a campus-wide celebration that broadly recognizes all U graduates. It features words of congratulation from campus leaders and inspiring keynote speakers. We need Transform graduates to help our school have a presence at this university-wide event.

Graduates participating in commencement can enjoy a pizza party and photo booth in the Transform student lounge (GC 4200) at 4 p.m. and walk to the Huntsman Center together to line up at 5 p.m. Graduates will walk into commencement behind the School for Cultural and Social Transformation banner, sit together and show support for Transform. Regalia must be worn for commencement. If you borrow a cap and gown, we strongly ask you to attend the commencement.
