Are you a Clarke Legacy?

Commencement Legacy Program

Clarke University’s Commencement Legacy Program

Any student who has a parent, grandparent, sibling or spouse who is a graduate of Clarke University (undergraduate or graduate program) is considered to be a legacy.

What is the Clarke Commencement Legacy Program?

Alumni and students are the most important people in the Clarke community and the Commencement Legacy Program is designed to honor them as well as encourage their family to become part of the university’s proud commencement tradition. To celebrate this Commencement Legacy Program Clarke will recognize families for making Clarke education part of their family tradition.  This Legacy is offered to encourage the Clarke spirit in students who are children, grandchildren, siblings or spouse of Clarke graduates.  Generations of families have passed on the Clarke education tradition to their children, grandchildren, siblings and spouse and we want to help celebrate this special relationship by providing a blue/gold cord to the Legacy Graduates of 2017. Cords will be provided at commencement practice on Friday, May 12th. Legacy buttons will also be provided at practice for the spouse, parent, grandparent, sibling to wear the day of commencement.
