College celebrates 2020, 2021 graduates in first-time Commencement ceremonies in Mackay Stadium
Two in-person ceremonies honor the awarding of nearly 300 degrees
After a year unlike any other, our College celebrated the graduates of its 2020 and 2021 classes with two in-person Commencement ceremonies, held May 12-13. For family members and friends who could not attend, there were many options to watch the ceremonies live from a mobile device or on TV. Graduates and their families were encouraged to join the Commencement conversation online by using the hashtags #NVGrad2020, #NVGrad2021, #NVGrads and #PackPride.
The two ceremonies recognizing our College's graduates were part of eight Commencement ceremonies our University held this spring to commemorate the awarding of more than 8,300 degrees.

Growing a stronger Nevada
Our programs work together to make an impact
Our teaching, research and engagement programs are intertwined and complement one another. Faculty who teach on campus also conduct research as part of our Experiment Station, allowing students to learn about and participate in research. Extension faculty engaging with communities identify research needs, as well as join Experiment Station faculty to conduct research. Faculty on campus help to develop Extension programs in communities.
