We plan to hold an in-person commencement on Nov. 21 before students go home for Thanksgiving break. We want all of our 2020 graduates — fall, spring and summer — to have the opportunity to wear their cap and gown and walk across the stage in person. This will be a closed event only for graduates and faculty.
