Commencement 2022

Saturday, May 14

Watch the 2022 ceremonies

More than 2,600 students joined the Central Connecticut State University alumni community following our May 14 commencement ceremonies.

Building off the success of last year’s outdoor commencement exercises, university officials elected once again to host the 2022 ceremonies on campus. Graduates and their guests gathered at Arute Field, where the names of each degree candidate were read aloud during two ceremonies.

The first ceremony at 9 a.m. honored graduates of the Carol A. Ammon College of Liberal Arts & Social Sciences and the School of Business. Troy McMullen ’89, an Emmy Award-winning journalist who is the current executive editor at ABC News in New York, served as the morning ceremony’s guest speaker.

The second ceremony at 2:30 p.m. honored graduates of the School of Education & Professional Studies and School of Engineering, Science & Technology. Michele “Mickey” Perez ’14, ’16 addressed students at the afternoon ceremony. Perez is an industrial manager at Pratt & Whitney and the founder of Super Jet Brunette, a STEM education organization.

In her remarks to the Class of 2022, CCSU President Zulma R. Toro said, “Celebrations of milestones do not come often enough. What you have accomplished, during one of the most volatile times in recent history, is truly remarkable. Savor this day.”
