Please join Dean Daas, the School administration, faculty and staff in celebration of the academic success of our Architecture, Design and Urban Planning graduates as they complete one of the most important milestones of their lives and prepare to start their professional careers. The School of Architecture, Design & Planning will be hosting two separate events in their honor, a reception at Marvin Hall and the recognition ceremony at the Lied Center.

More information for students to come.

School of Architecture, Design & Planning Recognition Ceremony

Friday, May 12, at 6:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m
The Lied Center, 1600 Stewart Drive, West Campus, Lawrence

The School will honor all of our graduating students at this special recognition ceremony.  Because graduates will be recognized as they walk across the stage, we request that they don full academic regalia.  To ensure that all graduates have family and friends in attendance to celebrate their academic success, we are asking that each graduate limit their attendee list to no more than 10, including the graduate. Please RSVP here.

For additional information or to ask questions please contact Whitney Juneau or call 785-864-1577.
