Commencement vs. Convocation

Commencement is our larger event. During Commencement the students process onto the field at Delaware Stadium. Degrees are conferred by the President of the University, the graduating students are acknowledged by College, the commencement speaker delivers his/her address, and several notable recipients are awarded honorary degrees. Commencement is the only time when the entire graduating class is brought together.

Convocation is the smaller ceremony where students are individually recognized by their college or department and each graduating student walks across the stage to receive his/her graduation certificate. When a student graduates with a double major, he or she may choose to attend both convocations if time permits, or just one. It is not necessary to attend a convocation for a minor. None of the events are mandatory, but most students attend as many as they can. No tickets are required for History Convocation!

History and Social Studies Education Convocation ceremony will be held on Friday, May 31st at 12:30 pm in Mitchell Hall - Theatre (Room 100) with a reception to follow in Trabant University Center - Multipurpose Room ABC (Room 141 ABC).
