Because the 2012 NATO Summit will be held in downtown Chicago, Meadville Lombard is forced in its first year of residency downtown to return to the Hyde Park neighborhood for the spring Commencement ceremonies. The 2012 Commencement will be held on Sunday, May 20, at 3 p.m. at First Unitarian Church, 5650 South Woodlawn Avenue, where we have held Commencement for decades. The Rev. Peter Morales, President of the UUA, will deliver the commencement sermon. The Senior Vespers Service and the Commencement dinner will be held on Saturday, May 19, beginning at 5 p.m. at Ida Noyes Hall, 1212 East 59th Street on the University of Chicago campus.
