Each year, the Graduate School of Education invites students graduating with an Undergraduate Minor Degree in Education and those graduating with Undergraduate Honors in Education to an annual Honor Cord Ceremony. This Commencement Ceremony celebrates the achievements of our undergraduate students and the families and friends who have supported them. This event is typically held the Friday prior to Commencement.
