Faculty

Due to our increasing attendance numbers, the May undergraduate ceremony will, for the first time, be divided into a MORNING ceremony and an AFTERNOON ceremony. It divides equally the overall number of expected graduates into each of the two ceremonies. Below is the list of our May 2019 Commencement Ceremonies. (All ceremonies will take place at Pinnacle Bank Arena, located at 400 Pinnacle Arena Dr., Lincoln, NE 68508.)
