Indiana University President Michael McRobbie and IU East Chancellor Kathryn Cruz-Uribe will preside over the event honoring 772 baccalaureate degree and 23 master's degree recipients from December 2015 and candidates for May, June and August 2016.

Former Indiana State Senator Allen Paul and to former Indiana State Representative Dick Bodicker will receive honorary degrees.
