Class of 2023 Graduation


    The 2023 Whitman Convocation Brochure


    Whitman doctoral, graduate, and undergraduate students, as well as guests, will gather at the Whitman School, located at 721 University Ave., Syracuse N.Y. 13244, to celebrate our student's accomplishments prior to the convocation ceremony in the JMA Wireless Dome in May.

    Commencement Weekend has historically been scheduled to correspond with the second Sunday in May. This academic year, graduation weekend is anticipated to take place from May 12 to May 14. Due to the ongoing University response to COVID-19, many details, including the ceremony itself, are unconfirmed.

    Students are advised to monitor their emails for updates from the University. Parking is historically available at the University-owned lots on campus that afternoon. The Whitman School convocation ceremony offers individual recognition for each Whitman student participating in the in-person event. Tickets are not issued nor needed for this event. Full regalia is required for student participants.
