Commencement

CDU is moving ahead with planning two in-person Commencement ceremonies at Dignity Health Sports Park, Tennis Center for 6/6 (New Location). The Mervyn Dymally School of Nursing ceremony will take place at 9 a.m. The College of Medicine and the College of Science and Health ceremony goes down at 3 p.m. 

We will be celebrating the Class of 2022 as well as welcoming back the Classes of 2020 and 2021 so they can celebrate in person too.

That's three Classes of Mighty Lions together as one, making this our biggest Commencement celebration ever!  

The theme for this year's commencement will be a quote from Dr. Cornel West: "You can't lead the people if you don't love the people. You can't save the people if you don't serve the people." 

Speaking of Dr. West, he will be one of our keynote speakers, addressing the morning ceremony for the School of Nursing. Dr. Hasbrouck will address the afternoon session for College of Medicine and College of Science and Health graduates.

Proof of COVID-19 vaccination, Including booster if eligible, is required for all guests and participants entering Dignity Health Sports Park.

All graduating CDU students are welcome to invite friends and family to their Commencement Ceremony. No tickets will be required.

Step forward and share your CDU pride by volunteering to help make the 6/6 event at Dignity Health Sports Park our biggest and best commencement ceremony in the university's history. Click to sign up

Of course, all plans are subject to change based on prevailing COVID-19 guidance at the time. 

So, Mighty Lions of 2022 (and 2021 and 2020), mark your calendars and bookmark this page to stay up to date on the latest information. We'll have details coming soon about tickets, ceremonies, parking, and more. 

 In the meantime, share your excitement on social media with #MIGHTYLIONS and #CDUCLASSOF2022.
