2021 Recognition Ceremony

Recognizing our Graduates 

Each spring, University College hosts a Recognition Ceremony for those students who have completed a degree or certificate program in the previous summer or fall or current spring. Although we can not celebrate in-person this year, we are recognizing our Class of 2021 in the video below.

We invite our graduates as well as friends, family, faculty, and peers to watch this heartfelt celebration of achievement.

Watch the May 2020 Virtual Recognition Ceremony on YouTube.
