Graduation from seminary and institute is about more than just receiving a diploma. It represents a systematic study of the gospel that can help students build a lifelong foundation of gospel principles.
In the video below, Brother Chad Webb discusses some of the ways graduation can bless students and help fulfill the Objective of Seminaries and Institutes of Religion. As you watch, we invite you to reflect on the ways graduation has blessed your students and how you have helped your students, their parents, and priesthood leaders to understand the “why” behind graduation.
You are also encouraged to review Elder Kim B. Clark's words about Deep Learning at the 2017 Evening with a General Authority. Elder Clark invites institute teachers to consider how graduating from institute will help young adults come to "know and love Jesus Christ".
