University of Pennsylvania Commencement 2020 Update
To protect the health of our graduates, their families, alumni, and faculty and staff of the University—our highest priority in the face of this unprecedented coronavirus pandemic—the University is canceling this year’s on-campus Commencement events and moving them to a virtual ceremony that will be broadcast online.
In light of the disruption our graduating students are going through, we all want to do more, not less, to celebrate and honor you. Commencement ceremonies on May 18, 2020 will be moved online. There will be in-person Commencement ceremonies on Penn’s campus when it is safe and feasible to do so. Please read University President Amy Gutmann’s message for full details.
