Save the Date | Class of 2020 Commencement

Undergraduate Class of 2020

October 26, 2021

Dear Members of the Class of 2020:

I am pleased to announce that we plan to host a Commencement ceremony and a set of special events on May 28 and 29 of 2022 to celebrate the Class of 2020 and to provide an opportunity for graduates to reconnect with one another.

The overall planning will take into account your input from a forthcoming survey, as well as the current public health context, including District of Columbia guidelines and University policies. We are hopeful that with public health conditions improving and fewer restrictions in the region, it will be possible to plan for a traditional commencement ceremony.

While there are many details forthcoming, I wanted to share the date as soon as it was confirmed to support the necessary planning and travel for you, as well as your families. You will continue to receive updates as additional details are finalized. I am deeply grateful for your patience as we worked to finalize the dates and look forward to celebrating your achievements as fully as we had all hoped for in May of 2020.

As planning continues, you are invited to share your input through a survey that will follow this message. Please share your thoughts through this survey by Monday, November 29, so that your ideas can be incorporated as we work to create a meaningful moment for the Class of 2020.

I look forward to welcoming you back to the Hilltop to celebrate your achievements.

You have my very best wishes.


John J. DeGioia
