This decision was not made lightly, but with the health and welfare of all students, their families and community members in mind.

Let me assure you that the University is working diligently on creating a commencement event, unique to the times, that we can celebrate. More details will be available in the coming weeks. Please return back to this page for updates.

If you have ideas on how this historical commencement should look, you can submit them here. I welcome your thoughts.

To members of the Class of 2020: this news is especially unfortunate. Your disappointment is felt by many.

When we do come together to celebrate your accomplishments, there will be an added measure of admiration and congratulations for the great resiliency and adaptability you have shown despite the most challenging of times.

Your commitment to your educational success is extraordinary and something to be proud of.
