Harvard Extension School welcomes and celebrates admitted degree candidates

The Harvard Extension School, one of Harvard University's degree-granting institutions, was founded around one hundred and eight years ago. On one beautiful autumn day in September of 2018, the school finally held its Inaugural Convocation Ceremony to welcome and celebrate its admitted degree candidates.

"It's odd for me to stand here and say it took us a hundred and eight years to figure out we should be doing this."

-- Dean Hunt Lambert during his remarks at the Inaugural HES Convocation held at Harvard Memorial Church on 29 September 2018
