Spalding University Commencement tradition began when Henry Clay presented a diploma to the first graduate of Nazareth Academy, founded and operated by the Sisters of Charity of Nazareth. For years, the first Saturday of June has marked the day of celebration for our graduates. Even though the pandemic has forced us to break tradition and postpone our official Commencement ceremony, we celebrated the Class of 2020 virtually and invited them back for our 2021 in-person ceremonies.


Virtual Celebration: June 4-7, 2020
The accomplishments, perseverance and determination of our 2020 graduates are worth celebrating. Watch our virtual celebration.
