About the Ceremony

The Doctoral Hooding Ceremony celebrates the hundreds of graduate students every year who complete a doctoral degree. In order to graduate, all of these students made substantive and original contributions that advanced the state of knowledge in their academic fields. These students have mastered the cutting edge of research and pushed past it, marshaling evidence to create new knowledge. This year's graduating doctoral candidates come from the professional schools, the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, and the University of Kansas Medical Center.

Ceremony Scheduled for May 13, 2023
