2019-2020 Commencement Update

September 02, 2020

We have been meeting regularly to assess the COVID19 situation to determine how best to host an in-person graduation ceremony in October. This week, we have had to make the hard decision to forego an in-person celebration. Combined with rising COVID19 numbers in Illinois and a pending flu season, it will be difficult for us to safely and responsibly host events with anyone outside of the immediate on-campus GU community. We have therefore made arrangements to offer an alternative online ceremony which I will outline below.
