ACE Commencement

Congratulations, classes of 2020, 2021 and 2022!

In-Person Ceremony

Join us as we celebrate American College of Education’s graduating classes of 2020, 2021 and 2022 in our first in-person commencement since 2019!

Virtual Ceremony

Welcome graduates, families and friends to the American College of Education 2022 Virtual Commencement ceremony. On behalf of the entire administration, we are excited to honor our graduates and to recognize the important work they do to contribute to our communities. ACE also applauds the support that family and friends of our graduates have given these dedicated professionals. Thank you for joining us today to celebrate this momentous milestone.

Our on-demand ceremony will include two parts. It will begin with the main ceremony where you will hear from Dr. Shawntel Landry, President of American College of Education, and our Chief Academic Officer and Provost, Dr. Heidi Wilkes. Once that has concluded, you will proceed to the individual recognition portion. Please follow the instructions to view the Reading of Names by individual degree program. This is where graduates will be recognized with a virtual diploma and their provided photo, and President Landry will offer closing remarks.

Reading of the Names

After the main ceremony video, you will see interactive in-video links that will take you to videos for the separate reading of names by individual degree programs. If you do not see those in-video links, please click the button below to go directly to the gallery of videos.
