UPLAND — Taylor University, the liberal arts school in Upland, will have Vice President Mike Pence as its featured commencement speaker next month.

“Mr. Pence has been a good friend to the University over many years, and is a Christian brother whose life and values have exemplified what we strive to instill in our graduates," said Taylor President Dr. Paul Haines. "We welcome the Vice President and his wife, Karen Pence, to this 173-year-old premier institution of Christian higher education, and thank them for their love and service for our nation, our state, and our institution.”

Commencement at Taylor is May 18 at 10 a.m. in the Kesler Student Activities Center.

Due to the anticipated larger-than-usual graduating class and expected crowd, tickets will be required for admission to the Kesler Center, which will be distributed to members of Taylor’s Class of 2019 and their families.

Taylor University has about 2,500 students and is located in Upland, a small Grant County town about 75 miles northeast of Indianapolis.
