Dear Students and Colleagues,

I hope that you are doing well and preparing for a great finish to the winter term. With spring coming into view, it's not too early to start planning for that joyous occasion when we celebrate the accomplishments of Drexel's 2022 graduates.

I am pleased to announce that Drexel will again hold its University-wide Commencement at Citizens Bank Park in June. At the end of a year that will have included remote and in-person classes, it will be wonderful to gather at the ballpark with families and friends. And no one will be left out; for those who cannot attend in person, the ceremony on Thursday, June 9, 2022 will be livestreamed.

In the midst of extraordinary circumstances, it will be my honor and privilege to confer all Drexel degrees completed during this academic year. In addition to the Thursday ceremony, there will be two days of in-person college- and school-specific ceremonies this year held on Wednesday, June 8 and Thursday, June 9.

The ceremonies for the College of Medicine and the Thomas R. Kline School of Law will be held at the Kimmel Center on Friday, May 13 and Monday, May 23, respectively. A detailed Commencement schedule will be posted on the Commencement site.

While we know that this year's graduates are looking forward to celebrating their accomplishments in keeping with Drexel traditions, the well-being of all members of the Drexel community remains our top priority. Evidence-based public health protocols will guide our decisions for graduation events.

Our entire faculty and professional staff are deeply proud of the achievements of our 2022 graduates. We look forward to honoring their academic accomplishments at Drexel and the contributions they have made in the community. I eagerly look forward to welcoming every one of them into the ranks of Drexel alumni – and to seeing their loved ones and all of you there.
