As we focus on putting students first, plans for the Aug. 8 commencement are underway. After hearing the ideas and wishes of many spring graduates, we will have three ceremonies that day and allow graduates to invite family members. We will modify the floor seating, name card distribution and diploma cover presentation to help keep participants distanced.

9 a.m.

Education & Interdisciplinary Studies

Noon

Engineering, Nursing and Fine Arts

3 p.m.

Arts & Sciences, Business & Ag/Human Ecology

(Note: In a change from the original plans, master’s and Ph.D. graduates will be included in these ceremonies).

Student workers are a vital part of our team at each commencement, but for this ceremony, most students will not be available to work. We are asking for volunteers to work as greeters and ushers that day to help guide graduates and visitors through the arena.
