GTU Commencement

Welcome to the
Graduate Theological Union
Commencement Website

The GTU Commencement occurs once a year in May and is open to GTU graduates and their loved ones. The event abounds with academic regalia, a few speeches, and time to introduce each graduate to the community. The graduate also receives a diploma and is invested in the hood of their degree.

Chai, Fredonia and I are keen on celebrating the accomplishments of all the graduates! We are working towards an in-person event, and will share more details soon.

If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact me at, Fredonia Thompson at or Chaitanya Motupalli at  

Wendy Arce, Ph.D. 
Associate Dean of Students
