Spring 2020 University Commencement Postponed


Planning is underway for a virtual commencement in December to recognize our graduating classes from Spring, Summer and Fall 2020. We know many of our seniors, graduate students and their families were terribly disappointed when commencement was cancelled in May. While it is possible conditions may be more conducive to an in-person gathering, committing to a virtual event will give everyone predictability and eliminate the need for travel and the possibility of last-minute cancellations.
