Commencement 2020




Undergraduate & Graduate Commencement Update

On March 23, President Judd announced that the graduate and undergraduate commencement ceremonies will not take place as scheduled in May 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Given the advice the College is receiving, it is hard to imagine that we could safely hold such a large gathering in the spring. We will likely hold virtual ceremonies of some sort, confer degrees, and mail diplomas, but we are committed to providing an in-person commencement for the Class of 2020 and doing so in a way that allows as many as possible to return and be awarded their degrees in the company of their classmates, friends, and faculty. We will communicate those plans as they develop.
