Students lined up for graduation.

Graduation. It's more than your last day here. It's a celebration of everything you did to get here.

December Commencement 

Mount St. Joseph University hosts the mid-year commencement on Thursday, December 10, at 7 p.m. in the Theatre.


Interim President Joel Thierstein will host guest speaker Professor Emerita Mary Ann Hater Haubner and members of the Mount’s Board of Trustees. Mary Ann Hater Haubner ’57 was a well-respected professor of mathematics and department chair at the Mount for over 30 years. In the 1970s, she helped to develop Weekend College, a program that offered adult students the opportunity to take classes Friday through Sunday. For her incredible contributions to the Mount, she was honored at the Celebrating Milestones event in 2013 and received the Loretta Richards Distinguished Alumni Award in 2007.


Special parking arrangements have been made for the evening. Members of the Department of Campus Police and Division of Institutional Advancement request that everyone honor the following arrangements:

  • The Administration Parking Lot (on Delhi Road) is reserved for the commencement speaker, board members and special guests, as well as those who have disabilities, and the faculty and staff members who have reserved parking spaces.
  • Others may park in the West Parking Lot. The first driveway to the West Lot will be closed, so everyone will need to access the lot from the second entrance.
  • Parking will also be available in the Parking Garage at the corner of Delhi and Neeb roads.

Commencement is a wonderful celebration of the accomplishments of our graduates and special guests. Please be respectful of these arrangements to help ensure an enjoyable evening for everyone. Thank you in advance for your cooperation.


The event is not open to the public – those who attend must have a ticket.
