Commencement is a milestone—one of life’s landmark occasions, a time when graduates, family members, and friends gather to celebrate past and future.

To celebrate the University of Michigan’s 200th birthday planning is underway for a special spring commencement ceremony that will celebrate the graduating class of 2017 and honor the university’s contributions of the past, present and future.  This ceremony in Michigan Stadium will uniquely mark the university’s bicentennial with multiple speakers, a musical performance and special seating for graduates on the field.

It’s our goal to make this a truly memorable day for you—and those who supported you along the way. If you have any questions or concerns that aren’t answered on this site, please contact the Office of University and Development Events at or  (734) 647-6037.
