Commencement will be Celebrated in August…Virtually!

Our May Commencement Ceremony is the highlight of our year, attracting 3,000 people, including our graduates and their family and friends, and our faculty and staff.

It’s no surprise that won’t be possible this May, and who knows when it will be safe to host a celebration of this size.

We’ve been working hard to determine the best way to celebrate our amazing 2020 graduates, who have shown great resilience in the midst of unprecedented challenges. The good news is that we have a plan.

Our May 16 ceremony has been postponed, but we will have a virtual celebration in August. We will share remarks from our featured speaker and our student speaker, celebrate our award recipients and, most importantly, recognize our graduates.

Each grad will receive a surprise package in the mail during the month and be invited to host their own celebration, one they can share with the community through videos or photos.

After we have received graduate videos and photos, we will create a Commencement 2020 video that we will share widely.

All 2020 graduates will also be invited to participate in the 2021 graduation in May, which will be a joint ceremony for both classes.

We are working on the details now, and we’ll share them with you as they come.

Thank you for your patience and your understanding during these most difficult times. While it won’t be a traditional commencement, we are looking forward to creatively celebrating our graduates and engaging faculty, staff, families, and the community in recognizing their achievements.
