Commencement - College of Nursing and Health Innovation

UPDATE for December 2019 CONHI Commencement Ceremonies

The College of Nursing and Health Innovation will have two commencement ceremonies.  This semester’s commencement ceremony has the largest number of graduates, and in order to ensure all students and their guests have the best possible graduation experience, it is necessary for the University to host two separate College of Nursing and Health Innovation Commencement ceremonies. This is a change from the recent past and is due to a projected increase in the number of CONHI graduates and the corresponding need for increased guest seating.
