Commencement ceremonies update

As it is unlikely that large gatherings of people will be permitted for quite some time, we have begun planning a virtual ceremony on Saturday, December 5 for all August and December 2020 graduates. This will include your individual recognition through the display of a photo and an audio of your name, similar to having your name read at an in-person ceremony. We are working diligently in the planning of your ceremony that will be accessible world-wide while keeping the health and wellness of all of our students and their families as the most important priority. 

We will have many more details for you in the upcoming weeks but wanted to apprise you of this change. We know that many of you and your families have travel arrangements that you are waiting on. This will allow you to make plans accordingly. We know that you have many questions and we ask you for your patience as we work through the many logistics and details. Urgent questions can be emailed to commencement@unr.edu
