Each May, commencement ceremonies are held on the main campus of Howard University. The Commencement ceremony celebrates the accomplishments of all graduating students from degree-granting programs across the University. The College of Dentistry's Honors and Awards Ceremony also occurs during Commencement Week Activities.
