IUPUI’s commencement will return to one campus-wide ceremony next month as it moves to Lucas Oil Stadium. Since the demolition of the RCA Dome in 2008, the ceremony has been held in two sessions at the Indiana Convention Center.
The university says more than 6,700 students will receive undergraduate, graduate and professional degrees on May 8. The ceremony begins at 1:00 p.m. and there will be individual school recognition events at the Indiana Convention Center one hour prior. The only exceptions are the IU School of Medicine, IU School of Dentistry and the IU Robert H. McKinney School of Law, which are holding their events May 7.
This year’s commencement address will be given by John Lechleiter, president and chief executive officer of Eli Lilly and Co. (NYSE: LLY). You can click here for more information on the ceremony.
