This is an interfaith service, reflecting the diversity of religious life at Princeton University. As its name suggests, the Baccalaureate service is a celebration focused especially on the members of the senior class—those receiving bachelor’s degrees. This service also honors those about to receive graduate degrees. The Baccalaureate address is one of the University’s oldest traditions. Speakers at Baccalaureate are chosen for their capacity to speak on topics related to human values, broadly considered.
Featured speaker: Ruth Simmons, Prairie View A&M University President
