Congratulations, graduates

We look forward to recognizing the accomplishments of the Class of 2021 this May. As announced, there will be a hybrid approach to the ceremony. In-person Commencement participation will be available for our current campus community of eligible graduates, faculty, and staff.

We’ll be providing plenty of ways to join in the graduation celebration virtually. This website will be updated with those details as they become available, including graduate names, downloadable assets, and more.

Be sure to check our Commencement website for further news and updates.
