Commencement Flashback with the Archives

Congratulations, 2020 and 2021 graduates!

The 2020-2021 commencement this spring is completely online and will recognize Spring 2021 grads along with Spring 2020 and Fall 2020 grads. RLB Library hopes you, your friends, and your family members enjoy all of the online celebrations!

You can also celebrate by looking back at previous University of Baltimore Commencement Ceremonies with Special Collections & Archives’ digital exhibit: Commencement.

This online display highlights a few recorded commencement ceremony videos from years past. You can also click through and check out copies of programs from older University commencements. The archival collection holds copies of the programs for years 1928-2019. Who knows, maybe you’ll recognize names of past graduates.

The image below is from one of our favorite commencement videos in the exhibit and features speaker, Elijah E. Cummings. Click on the image to watch his commencement speech.
