About Baccalaureate Blessing

The history of the Baccalaureate ceremony is firmly entrenched in the medieval European custom of presenting graduating candidates for the degree of Bachelor (bacca) with laurels (lauri) or recognition of their achievement. It is traditionally a religious service of celebration and thanksgiving for the time the graduates (Bachelor and advanced degrees) have devoted to growing in wisdom at a place of education.

University Mission and Ministry cordially invites the UIW family to gather in thanksgiving to celebrate the sacrifices and accomplishments of our soon to be graduates. Though we are unable to gather in the traditional way, we know that having the opportunity to see friends, family, and mentors who have impacted one's life is an important part of the celebration of this day. Registration for the Zoom link is now closed, however, the Zoom celebration will be aired on this page.
