Celebrating 121 Years of Excellence


The board of trustees, faculty, staff and students of Des Moines University are pleased to welcome you to this Commencement Ceremony, the one hundred and twenty-first in the institution's proud history. Our academic traditions date back to our founding in 1898, and our academic mission was soon confirmed with the awarding of degrees to the first class of eight in 1899. Today, Des Moines University is proud to continue its academic mission.
