IWU celebrates December Commencement

IWU celebrates December Commencement


Indiana Wesleyan University will graduate 1,792 people on Saturday, Dec. 19 during two ceremonies in the Chapel Auditorium on the Marion residential campus.

A ceremony at 10:00 a.m. will include all non-residential undergraduate degrees, except Bachelor of Science in Nursing. A ceremony at 2:00 p.m. will include all residential undergraduate degrees, Bachelor of Science in Nursing degrees and all graduate-level degrees.

The commencement speaker will be Brian Harlow, a 1997 IWU alum and the vice president for Manufacturing of Fiat Chrysler Automotive (FCA) North America. He first joined the former Chrysler Corporation in 1978 as a plant engineer at the Kokomo Transmission Plant, and has since held various manufacturing positions of increasing responsibility. Harlow earned a bachelor’s degree in Civil Engineering from Purdue University and a master’s degree in Management from IWU.     

Graduating on Saturday will be the first students awarded the Master of Public Administration degree. The 36-hour program, which emphasizes social responsibility and civic engagement, equips students to effectively and compassionately address current governmental challenges. 

Tickets are not required for either the 10:00 a.m. or the 2:00 p.m. ceremony.

IWU's next commencement ceremonies are scheduled for April 30, 2016.
