May 2022 Graduation
Commencement is the single most important event at Duquesne University, not only for our students, but for the campus at large. It is a time to celebrate your accomplishments and to revel in the camaraderie of your fellow classmates. It is also a very special time for family and friends, as they look forward to this opportunity to show their pride and celebrate you.
Graduating students, their families, and friends, are invited to attend our May 2022 Diploma Ceremonies, and tickets are not required for guests. A Baccalaureate Mass on Friday, May 13, 2022 will precede the ceremonies.
