Sue Ott Rowlands, provost and executive vice president for academic affairs, notified graduating students Tuesday that the May 2016 Commencement ceremony date has been pushed back one week.

The ceremony will now be held on Friday, May 13 for Chase Law students, while the undergraduate and graduate ceremonies will be moved to Saturday, May 14.

The reason for this change is due to the original ceremonies coinciding with the Kentucky Derby and Mother’s Day. Rowlands stated that this decision was made in order to reduce scheduling conflicts so that students who want to partake in the ceremonies or people who want to attend are able to do so.

All ceremonies will remain in the BB&T Arena and will not conflict with any summer courses or study abroad programs.

According to Amanda Nageleisen, director of public relations at NKU, this decision was made by university administrators who consulted with leaders of the Faculty Senate, Staff Congress and Student Government Association. 

NKU has offered graduating seniors the option to stay on campus for the extra week, free of charge, due to any inconvenience the push back may have caused.  

Continue to follow The Northerner for more information on the effects and reasons for the date changes.
