2 commencements planned

commencement students

Pitt will have two commencement ceremonies this year.

In a departure from past years, in which only doctoral degree candidates were recognized individually, separate ceremonies are planned to permit undergraduates to be recognized individually as well. Graduate degrees will be awarded in a ceremony at 4 p.m. April 29; the undergraduate ceremony is set for 1 p.m. April 30, both at the Petersen Events Center.

Chancellor Patrick Gallagher told Senate Council March 22: “This gives us the chance to have a much more personal emphasis for all the students who are participating.”
