We are hopeful that we’ll be able to host a safe and responsible in-person Commencement ceremony for the Class of 2021 on Saturday, May 29 (Memorial Day Weekend). We recognize it is too early to finalize a decision and that such an event will require widespread availability of a vaccine. Some institutions are beginning to plan alternative celebrations that allow graduating seniors to gather with social distance and to receive a diploma while walking across the Commencement stage, with parents and family members participating virtually. We will explore all options and select one that both honors our seniors and ensures the health and safety of our campus.
