Commencement Moves to Three Ceremonies for Fall 2015

By Jeff Murphy, October 20, 2015

WARRENSBURG, MO – With the fall commencement ceremony traditionally featuring a smaller number of participants than spring graduation exercises, the University of Central Missouri’s Commencement Committee is planning for three ceremonies Dec. 11-12.

Fall 2015 Commencement activities begin with the Graduate Commencement at 6 p.m. Friday, Dec. 11 in the Multipurpose Building, and two ceremonies planned the following day at the same location. New graduates of the  Harmon College of Business and Professional Studies and the College of Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences will be recognized at 10 a.m. Saturday, Dec. 12, and graduates of the College of Health, Science, and Technology, and the College of Education, will be honored at 2 p.m.

The Commencement Planning Committee considered the change in the number of ceremonies as a way to honor graduates and provide a comfortable viewing experience for graduates and their families. In spring 2015, five ceremonies took place to accommodate a record number of graduates and outstanding family participation. More information about the May 2016 ceremony will be provided during the spring semester.
