The Departmental 2020 Virtual Graduation Celebration for our 30 graduating Ph.D. degree candidates and two master of science candidates can be viewed here no later than Saturday, June 13, 2020 at 12:00 p.m. Pacific Time. The virtual celebration will not be “live,” so it can be accessed at anytime.
As a means to properly honor the Class of 2020 at a Departmental Commencement Ceremony, we have elected to offer a full in-person graduation ceremony for our students at a date to be determined.
Our hope is that the ceremony will take place in the 2020 calendar year if the current pandemic allows. However, attendance at our 2021 Departmental Commencement Ceremony will also be an option available to our students.
When possible, we will provide further details regarding the in-person celebration.
