Congratulations Class of 2022

This year’s campus-wide Convocation ceremony, during which President Alivisatos will confer degrees to all graduates, will be held on the Main Quadrangle on Saturday, June 4. The University is currently planning to hold all 2022 Convocation events in person, including the diploma and hooding ceremonies hosted by each school and division. Convocation is a time-honored tradition that brings together the University community to recognize the academic excellence of our students and faculty, and we as a University community look forward to welcoming our graduands and their families and friends to campus to celebrate this momentous occasion.


Please join in the Convocation 2022 celebration by posting photos and videos of moments of celebration and/or messages of congratulations using the hashtag #UChicago2022 on and around Convocation Weekend. Make sure to visit UChicago's social channels - Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter- to view messages from the UChicago community.

These events will be subject to any health and safety protocols in place at the time of the events. Should public health and safety conditions related to COVID-19 require alternative planning, the University will inform the community as promptly as possible.
