Diploma Ceremony Templates

The Office of University Communications (OUC) offers a Diploma Ceremony Program template for use by academic departments to distribute to guests during Commencement ceremonies. Staff may choose among several template options in black and white or color and work with the Office of Communications to produce them in a timely and cost-efficient manner.
