Graduation 2016

Commencement 2016 will mark a milestone in Manchester University history when we confer our first Doctor of Pharmacy degrees. This next chapter calls for establishing some new traditions as we honor the past and celebrate our unity as one University.

To that end, a committee of faculty and staff met over the summer to discuss events surrounding 2016 Commencement. Although it feels a long way away and many details remain to be worked out, we hope the following schedule will help you plan ahead:

Friday, May 13, 2016
Pharmacy Program awards ceremony in Fort Wayne (time to be determined)
All-University Baccalaureate Service, 6 p.m., Cordier Auditorium (students and faculty will not robe for this event)
Celebratory gathering/reception for all graduates and their guests, 7 p.m. Location on North Manchester campus to be determined

Saturday, May 14, 2016
Commencement and hooding for professional and master’s graduates, 10 a.m. Cordier
Commencement for undergraduates, 2:30 p.m., Physical Education and Recreation Center (PERC)

Additional information regarding these events will be announced in coming months. In the meantime, please save these dates. And if you have questions or suggestions regarding Commencement, please contact Julie Knuth at 260-982-5214 or
