Commencement Greeting

112th Commencement Ceremony

Dear Degree Candidates, Families, and Friends of the Class of 2024:

On behalf of President Susan R. Burns, PhD, Provost Lynne Bongiovanni, PhD, members of the Board of Trustees, and our faculty, I invite you to join us at the University of Mount Saint Vincent during Commencement Weekend on May 16-18, 2024.

The weekend begins with our Commencement and Hooding Ceremony for the College of Professional and Graduate Studies (celebrating our accelerated nursing and master’s degree graduates) on Thursday, May 16 at 6 PM in Cardinal Hayes Auditorium.

The Undergraduate Baccalaureate Mass and Hooding will be held on Friday, May 17 at 4 PM in the Chapel of the Immaculate Conception, to be followed by a brief reception with light refreshments in the Blue Room and the Honors Convocation Awards Ceremony at 6:15 PM back in the Chapel.

The Commencement Ceremony procession for bachelor’s degree graduates will begin promptly at 10 AM on Saturday, May 18.

For our students, graduation brings years of hard work and study to a close, and marks the first step toward new and even greater challenges. Parents, families, and friends can be genuinely proud, as we are, of all that they have accomplished in attaining their degrees.

I congratulate the graduates and look forward to the future success of our newest alumnae/i!

Fernando Mendoza
Dean of Students
