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

To accommodate as many graduates and their families as possible, Wheelock held two separate ceremonies:

  • Undergraduate Ceremony at 10 a.m.
  • Graduate Ceremony at 2 p.m.

Both ceremonies were held at Temple Ohabei Shalom, 1187 Beacon St., Brookline, MA.

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.
