Commencement 2014

Commencement Nears

UCSB's annual exercises will celebrate 5,779 graduates for 2013–2014
Monday, June 2, 2014 - 11:30
Santa Barbara, CA

By the close of the 2013–2014 academic year, UC Santa Barbara will have awarded a combined 5,779 undergraduate and graduate degrees. That accomplishment will be celebrated in eight official commencement ceremonies, to be held on campus over eight days, starting June 8 and concluding June 15.

The ceremonies are organized by college, level of degree, and field of study. Chancellor Henry T. Yang will shake the hand of every student graduating from the College of Creative Studies, the College of Engineering, the College of Letters and Science, the Bren School of Environmental Science & Management, and the Graduate Division.

The College of Creative Studies will lead off with its ceremony on Sunday, June 8, at 11 a.m., in Campbell Hall. The Bren School of Environmental Science & Management will conduct its ceremony on Friday, June 13, at 10 a.m., in the Bren Hall Courtyard.

On the weekend of Saturday, June 14, and Sunday, June 15, six ceremonies — three each day — will be held on the Faculty Club Green fronting the UCSB Lagoon.

All eight ceremonies will be webcast live. Over June 14-15, web coverage will be continuous, beginning at 8:30 a.m., running through and between the 9 a.m., 12:30 p.m., and 4 p.m. events. A link to the webcasts will be available via the UCSB home page.
