Commencement 2022

Information for Faculty and Staff

Drexel University will celebrate Commencement 2022 with its University-wide ceremony on Thursday, June 9 and College and School ceremonies on June 8 and 9. A momentous occasion for students and their loved ones, Commencement offers us the opportunity to come together as an academic community to celebrate the achievements of our graduates, as well as the commitment of the faculty and staff who have supported, educated and mentored them.

All faculty and staff are encouraged to attend the University-wide ceremony at Citizens Bank Park, where President Fry will confer degrees and Keynote Speaker Freeman A. Hrabowski III, educator, author, civil rights advocate, mathematician and president of the University of Maryland, Baltimore County, will address the crowd.

Please RSVP for All Commencement Ceremonies

College/School Ceremonies

After two years of virtual celebrations, Drexel will celebrate its College and School ceremonies in person at venues across campus and the city. All degree candidates (bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral) will be called to the stage by name at their College/School ceremony to be individually recognized.

Faculty and administrators are invited to join the academic procession for the ceremony or ceremonies appropriate to their position or interests. Full-time faculty are strongly encouraged to attend at least one Commencement ceremony for those whom they teach.
