Statements

All centers shall hold a graduation each year. Center directors will recommend names of those expected to graduate. Broad responsibility for planning the event rests with the center director, his/her designee and the local alumni student association working in close cooperation with the Office of Alumni and Student Relations.

Unit celebrations are also important, although less formal and more individualized. These events allow degree candidates to be recognized in their local communities. No formal conferral of degrees occurs at these occasions, which are celebratory rather than official.

Specific details and guidelines can be found in the Guide for Graduations revised each year by the Office of Alumni and Student Relations.
