Today we recognize our graduates’ accomplishments. Our college-specific video celebrations include messages from President Davenport, Interim Provost Cecil, the Dean of the college and student speakers who were selected to speak during commencement ceremonies.

Spring 2021 Graduates

Part of what makes commencement special is the recognition that graduates receive as they cross the stage during the ceremony. While we can't have a traditional ceremony this year, we do want to publicly recognize each of our graduates for their academic accomplishments.
