There are many events throughout Commencement Week, and we encourage you to connect with your graduate to learn which events you should attend.
Each school honors its graduates through its own Class Days, graduation ceremonies, and events.
The entire University community also comes together for University Commencement to celebrate all of the graduates from Columbia's 16 schools, and affiliate institutions Barnard College and Teachers College. The President of the University gives remarks and officially confers degrees on the graduates. This is a long-standing tradition and a memorable and celebratory event.
