Rackham Graduate Exercises

Celebrating the class of 2022!

Friday, April 29, 2022
Hill Auditorium

Event begins at 10:00 a.m.

Earning a graduate degree is a major achievement – one of life’s landmark occasions, a time when graduates, family members, and friends gather to celebrate past and future.

To mark this academic milestone, those receiving master’s or doctoral degrees through the Horace H. Rackham School of Graduates Studies are invited to attend Rackham’s graduation ceremony, Rackham Graduate Exercises (RGE). This formal ceremony celebrates and recognizes all graduate degree recipients.

It is 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 are not answered on this site, please contact the Office of University and Development Events at rackhamgraduateexercises@umich.edu or (734)647-7900.
