Recognizing the need to stay safe and the uncertain status of the
coronavirus pandemic, we are postponing May commencement, including all
university-wide, college, and departmental ceremonies, and will offer
graduates the chance to participate in an on-campus commencement during
the fall 2020 semester. Read more about the decision to postpone commencement.
