Graduation is a Time of Celebration!

Graduation is a time to celebrate Spertus Institute students as they mark the completion of their studies and become ambassadors, taking their newly acquired knowledge and skills to their own organizations and communities.

Spertus students are adult learners, whose lives outside Spertus are filled with important professional and family obligations. Thus, graduation is also a time for us to recognize the colleagues, friends, and loved ones who supported them from the sidelines.

This year we will return to an in-person ceremony, with a live stream to welcome graduates' family members and friends from around the world. 

We will be celebrating students receiving the degrees of:

  • Doctor of Hebrew Letters
  • Master of Arts in Jewish Studies
  • Master of Arts in Jewish Professional Studies
    Regional, North American, and Executive cohorts

Graduation Address and Honorary Degree

The graduation address will be delivered Dr. Morton Schapiro, the 16th president of Northwestern University, a leading authority on the economics of higher education, and a champion of Jewish student life. He will be awarded an honorary Doctor of Hebrew Letters.
