On May 17, 2023, violet banners will fly high over Yankee Stadium as New York University convenes its 190th All-University Commencement Exercises for the Class of 2023.


Order of Exercises

The Commencement Exercises last for approximately 90 minutes to two hours. The program includes remarks by university leadership, a student speaker, the awarding of honorary degrees to several distinguished individuals, the conferring of degrees and certificates to students, and the passing of the university torch.

It is not possible to recognize each individual student by name at Commencement. Deans will introduce each class as a whole and a student representative from the school, who is selected in advance, will receive a symbolic diploma.
