About this guide

Commencement weekend, with its formal baccalaureate services and university-wide commencement ceremony, follows traditions as ancient and universal as those from the first medieval universities and as unique as Duke University itself. Duke will celebrate commencement with a weekend full of events and ceremonies beginning on Friday, May 12 and ending on Sunday, May 14.
