Office for Religious Life

A bookend to students' Opening Convocation held four years earlier, Baccalaureate at Stanford is a multifaith celebratory gathering for graduating seniors, graduate students, and professional students, as well as their families and friends. It is a student-led commemoration acknowledging the spiritual contribution to the education of the whole person, organized under the auspices of the Office for Religious Life (ORL). In addition to lively music from culturally diverse backgrounds, the program includes readings from different communities and perspectives which represent the wide range of religious, spiritual and philosophical traditions within Stanford Associated Religions (SAR).

This year's Baccalaureate will feature speaker Marian Wright Edelman, renowned activist, advocate for the disadvantaged and founder of the Children's Defense Fund, as well as performances by Talisman A Capella and Stanford Taiko.

Graduating students are asked to meet in cap and gown at the rear of Memorial Church starting at 9:00 am where you can enjoy Izzy's Brooklyn Bagels, coffee and tea.
