2021 Commencement Celebrations

March 11, 2021
Since our last Commencement update in early February, the university has engaged members of our community, particularly our graduating students and their families, in order to collect feedback and ideas and consider a range of scenarios for in-person graduation elements. The university now has announced plans for our 2021 Commencement celebrations.

Update on 2021 Commencement Celebrations

February 04, 2021
As we head into the spring, we know one of the most important opportunities to come together is during graduation, and many at our university are working hard to create a rich and engaging virtual Commencement experience that celebrates our graduates. At the same time, we recognize the strong desire to gather in person to the extent safely possible to mark this important milestone. While we continue to plan virtual university-wide Commencement and school celebrations, we also are exploring all options for any in-person component we may safely host.
