The Doctoral Hooding and Graduation Ceremony is a very special ceremony held to recognize those students in receipt of an Au.D. (Doctor of Audiology), Ed.D. (Doctor of Education), or Ph.D (Doctor of Philosophy). Each candidate is announced individually, processes on-stage and is joined by their faculty mentor(s). President Ramsey, Provost Willihnganz, Dean Boehm and the Unit Dean join the candidate and their mentor(s) at center stage for the formal vesting ceremony. President Ramsey confers all doctoral degrees and diplomas are presented during the ceremony.
To be eligible to participate in the Doctoral Hooding and Graduation Ceremony, one must have completed all requirements for their doctoral degree to be awarded in May 2013.
