Commencement weekend, with its formal Baccalaureate services and Commencement ceremony, follows traditions as ancient and universal as those from the first medieval universities and as unique as Duke University itself.

Families and guests are invited to an unforgettable weekend celebrating the graduating class of 2014. The 162nd commencement ceremony will take place on Sunday, May 11 at Wallace Wade Stadium in historic Durham, North Carolina. See the full schedule of activities.
