2010 Commencement for Masters and Doctoral Graduates

May 7, 2010

For the first time, Indiana University will conduct a separate ceremony for graduate students receiving master's and doctoral degrees as part of the Bloomington Campus spring Commencement activities.

Traditionally, graduate students had received their degrees on Saturday along with undergraduate students in their respective schools. But IU President Michael A. McRobbie and Bloomington Provost Karen Hanson wanted to enrich the graduation experience for all participants and their families. Moving to a separate ceremony for graduate students will allow for more time to focus on their distinct achievements and observe the academic tradition of hooding Ph.D. and doctoral candidates.
