After carefully considering how to provide a quality commencement that would be safe and meaningful for graduates and their families, as well as current students, staff, and faculty in the midst of a pandemic, we have decided that the 2021 baccalaureate service and commencement ceremony will be virtual.
Both the baccalaureate service and the commencement ceremony will be streamed via Facebook Live. You do not have to have a Facebook account to view and react to the service.
Baccalaureate Service: 2 p.m. Central Saturday, June 5
Preacher: Craig Koester, Professor and Asher O. and Carrie Nasby Chair of New Testament
Presider: Rolf Jacobson, Professor of Old Testament and The Alvin N. Rogness Chair of Scripture, Theology, and Ministry
Commencement: 3 p.m. Central Sunday, June 6
Faculty Speaker: Carla Dahl, Professor of Congregational and Community Care, Leadership and George C. Weinman Chair of Pastoral Theology and Ministry
Student Speaker: Timothy Jackson, Master of Divinity Candidate
