“The University of Pittsburgh is starting a new tradition — two commencement ceremonies — to give our students and their families a more personal and engaging commencement experience,” said Chancellor Patrick Gallagher. “Our undergraduate and graduate ceremonies, while occurring on different days, will share one unchanging goal: to celebrate the accomplishments of our graduating students.”
