The Multifaith Baccalaureate Service

Butler University Class of 2020 Multifaith Baccalaureate Service
Please join us in a celebration of your student's accomplishments at the Butler University Multifaith Baccalaureate on Thursday, December 17th (evening time TBD).  Howard L. Schrott Center for the Arts. No cap and gown required.

Celebrating the end of the undergraduate years in ritual, readings, and blessings, this event marks the turning point of students and their families as a sacred time. In keeping with the University's commitment to religious pluralism and inclusion, the Multifaith Baccalaureate Service reflects the diversity of religious and philosophical commitments of Butler students. Steeped in the history of higher education, baccalaureate services come from the medieval European tradition of presenting candidates for the degree of bachelor (bacca) with laurels (lauri) in sermon oration. Today, Butler University is part of a widening community of U.S. colleges and universities holding religiously diverse baccalaureate services, striving to honor the distinct and varied faith traditions reflected on campus.

Seniors, come and celebrate with friends and family at this turning point in your life, by looking back and looking forward.
