Faculty, RSVP for Commencement, to Be Held May 13 at McCormick Place

I am pleased to share some initial details about Illinois Tech’s 2022–2023 Commencement Ceremony.

In a shift from past practices, the Main Ceremony will take place on Saturday, May 13, 2023, at 9 a.m. at McCormick Place, Hall B. College Ceremonies will follow the Main Ceremony and also will take place in McCormick Place, Hall B. This year there will be two combined College Ceremonies where degrees will be conferred for three of the university’s colleges. Ph.D. hooding also will take place during the College Ceremonies, with faculty advisers having the usual opportunity to hood their graduates.

  • The combined ceremony for Armour College of Engineering, the College of Architecture, and the Institute of Design will begin at noon, with individual receptions for each of those colleges taking place onsite at 3 p.m., after the College Ceremony.
  • The combined ceremony for the College of Computing, Lewis College of Science and Letters, and Stuart School of Business will begin at 3 p.m., with individual receptions for each of those colleges taking place onsite at noon, before the College Ceremony.

This is an important weekend for our entire community, and I encourage you to participate. It is important to our students and their families that we show our pride in our graduates and their accomplishments.
