President Morton Schapiro and University Chaplain Timothy Stevens invite graduates, their families, and guests to attend Baccalaureate, an interfaith service incorporating the principal faith traditions of the University.

This student designed program gives our graduates the opportunity to give thanks for their time in this community through diverse readings of sacred scripture, inspiring student reflections, and musical interludes provided by a student choir and orchestra.

A musical prelude begins a half hour before the service. Seating will be on a first-come, first-served basis.

Candidates do not wear caps and gowns at this service. Pick-Staiger Concert Hall is fully accessible.
