Commencement 2016

Each year, the University of the Pacific community gathers to salute our students one more time before they step beyond our gates and into the world. Join us this spring as we honor our students, and cheer them on as they transition from Pacific students to life-long Pacific alumni.

Commencement 2016

Welcome graduates, faculty, family & friends. Each year at the Commencement ceremony we recognize outstanding student leaders, often award distinguished public figures of high achievement with honorary degrees, and feature a keynote Commencement speaker. Students' degrees will be conferred by the President at this ceremony. The Commencement event is an important part of graduation, and we invite you to attend this special celebration.
