For the first time, University Communication and Marketing (UCM) staff are providing live streams of all 10 UI commencement ceremonies organized by the UI Office of the Registrar.

“We recognize that not all family, friends, and other loved ones are able to come to our campus to see UI commencement ceremonies,” says Ben Hill, director of video services for UCM. “This way, people can vicariously experience this milestone, even if they live thousands of miles away or other reasons prevent them from traveling here.”

Archival video will replace the live streams on this page shortly after each ceremony concludes.

The UI college of Pharmacy commencement ceremony occurred at 10 a.m. today, Thursday, May 15 and the archived footage is here:
