What is University Convocation?

Convocation is a university-wide ceremony involving degree candidates from all divisions and schools. It includes the presentation of honorary degrees and an address from the Convocation speaker. Paul Alivisatos, President of the University of Chicago, verbally confers degrees by division and school. Each division and school hosts a separate ceremony where degree candidates are honored individually through a presentation of diplomas.

What is the Graham School Diploma Ceremony?

Each year, the Graham School hosts an in-person diploma ceremony to recognize our individual gradates and present diplomas to graduating students.
