The New School’s 87th Annual University Commencement Ceremony was held on Friday, May 19, 2023, at 11:30 a.m. ET on the grounds of the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center. Thank you for joining us, in person or on livestream, as we celebrated the Class of 2023, our Distinguished Teaching Award recipients, and our Honorary Degree recipients. We look forward to celebrating with you again in 2024.
University Commencement is a festive occasion with lively student performances, the presentation of honorary degrees and distinguished teaching awards, inspiring speeches, and, of course, the conferral of degrees. At this ceremony, graduates are recognized collectively as part of their academic program. Commencement celebrates the shared experience of our graduates and is the most significant academic milestone of their New School career.
