Join us for Wheelock College's Commencement, the highlight of the academic year, where we celebrate our graduates and everything they have achieved during their college careers.

This year's Commencement is a particularly significant event as the college is celebrating its 130th Anniversary and preparing for its new future as Boston University's Wheelock College of Education & Human Development.

Ceremony Location

1187 Beacon Street
Brookline, MA 02446

Temple Ohabei Shalom, located just three blocks from Wheelock's Brookline Campus, was founded as the first synagogue in Massachusetts. A progressive Reform Jewish community, its mission—to create a diverse mosaic of interfaith families of many ethnicities and nationalities without regard to sexual orientation—closely aligns with our own.

Directions and Parking

Map iconThe Commencement Ceremony venue is a 5-minute walk from Wheelock's Brookline campus and a 15-minute walk from our Boston campus. Parking is extremely limited at all three locations, so we urge you to take public transportation if possible. We will be running a free shuttle service from the Boston campus to the Brookline campus and the Temple.
