Baccalaureate Service

The baccalaureate service invites the graduates, joined by their families and faculty and staff members, to hear an address by the University president and inspirational words by the 2019 recipient of the Jerome Balmuth Award for Teaching and Student Engagement and the senior class’s 1819 Award winner. Graduating seniors offer readings from Muslim, Jewish, Hindu, humanist, Christian, and Buddhist traditions, and student groups present musical and dance selections. The baccalaureate gathering offers both reflection for, as well as a farewell to, the graduating Colgate class.
