2023 Fall Commencement

Congratulations Fall 2023 graduates! We celebrated over 1,300 graduates during two fall commencement ceremonies on Saturday, Dec. 2. Classmates, friends and families gathered in the Baptist Health Arena at Alumni Coliseum to honor graduates from the university’s six academic colleges. Among the top awarded degrees were nursing, psychology, criminal justice, occupational science and social work. Notably, 43% of the class of 2023 became the first in their families to attain a higher education degree. The 2023 Fall graduates hail from 15 countries, 42 states and 102 Kentucky counties, ranging in age from 19 to 66. Degrees awarded include 134 certificates, 46 associate degrees, 866 bachelor’s degrees, 246 master’s degrees, 3 post-master’s certificates and 18 doctoral degrees.


Graduates—welcome to the Eternal Colonels family; we wish you the best in your future endeavors! Enjoy these celebratory moments from the fall commencement ceremonies, captured by Ben Keeling.
