Campus-wide December Hooding Ceremony

Upon the recommendation of the Committee on Commencement and with the support of Interim Chancellor Barbara Wilson, the Graduate College will pilot a campus-wide hooding ceremony on Saturday, December 10, 2016. The event will take place from 10:30 a.m. – noon in Foellinger Great Hall in the Krannert Center for the Performing Arts.

Each year, approximately 500 students receive their doctoral degrees in August and December. Offering these doctoral degree recipients the opportunity to participate in a campus-wide hooding ceremony in December will help them – along with faculty mentors – to celebrate their achievement closer to the time of degree completion.

We will be communicating more details soon with units, faculty, and degree candidates.
