Dear Colleague:

Commencement is an immensely important event in the lives of our students, their families and guests. It would be wonderful if the faculty members who have helped bring our students to this point in their education would be on hand to help formally recognize their achievements. To that end, we invite you to join us in honoring our students at the ceremony.

Northwestern University's 160th Commencement will be held on Friday, June 22, at 9:30 a.m. in Ryan Field. The University-wide Commencement ceremony is in addition to the individual school convocations held on Friday and Saturday, June 22 and 23, 2018. 

You will find the relevant information by visiting the Faculty Information page of the Commencement web site. Orders for caps and gowns for both the Commencement Exercises and School Convocations can be made through a link on that page. Orders must be placed prior to May 28, 2018.

We look forward to celebrating with you at Commencement.

Morton Schapiro
President and Professor​

Jonathan Holloway
