To promote safety during the coronavirus pandemic, the spring 2020 commencement ceremonies have been postponed to September 12 (and 13, if needed). A schedule of events for that weekend is expected to be available by mid-May. College and departmental ceremonies
and other recognition events that typically coincide with commencement ceremonies will not take place that weekend. Read more about the decision to postpone commencement.
