Dear University Community,
We are pleased to share with you that the University of La Verne is working to develop an in-person Commencement celebration to take place in mid-to late June at an on off-campus venue.
The in-person Commencement celebration will be in addition to the existing commencement activities, which include a Virtual Commencement Ceremony on May 29 and Graduate Drive-Through events on May 15 and 23.
Details of the in-person commencement celebration are still under review, but we are optimistic that it will allow spring 2021, winter 2021, and spring 2020 graduates to join classmates in having their names called and walking across the graduation stage.
Plans for all commencement activities will continue to prioritize the health and safety of the university community and adhere to state and local public health requirements. Those requirements continue to ease as COVID-19 infection rates drop and greater numbers of people are vaccinated.
We are delighted to add this opportunity to our series of events honoring graduates for their great achievements. We will share additional information with graduates and the university community as it becomes available.
