Spertus Institute 2021 Graduation

Spertus Institute 2021 Graduation

Sunday, May 2, 2021


Nothing can stop Spertus from celebrating our graduates!

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's graduation will be unlike any in our 97-year history.

Because of COVID-19, the ceremony will be virtual, and we plan to take advantage of everything we’ve learned this year about online programming. One of our favorite lessons — indeed a bright spark amid 2020’s challenges — is that virtual programs allow us to dissolve geographic boundaries, to welcome participants from near and far. We look forward, therefore, to including graduates’ family members and friends from around the world.

At this point, we can say with confidence that we will produce and present a ceremony as intimate and meaningful as it would be in person, something to which our many program participants and online learners can attest.

We will be awarding degrees to students from all our degree programs — Jewish Studies (both our Doctoral and Master’s programs) and Jewish Professional Studies (including local, regional, and executive cohorts).
