Commencement 2020 Postponed


Dear Students, Faculty, and Staff,

These are challenging times and I am grateful that we are together as a university community when so many things are uncertain.

I’m happy to share some good news of special importance to the Class of 2020. While our traditional Commencement ceremonies will not be taking place as planned in May, we are not cancelling this celebration but postponing it.

We will work closely with 2020 Class Officers, Graduate Council, and faculty and staff leadership to find an appropriate future date to invite graduates and their families back to campus to celebrate their amazing achievements. There is much planning to be done, so please be patient as we develop an appropriate schedule.

Together, we are stronger, and I look forward to celebrating with each of you on our beautiful campus when the time if right. I’ll be in touch again when details can be shared.
