Mississippi University for Women will recognize fall graduates during the 2020 Virtual Fall Commencement Exercise set for Tuesday, Nov. 24 at 2 p.m.
"Our desire to recognize our graduating students with an in-person commencement ceremony remains strong, but the current public health situation will not allow it," said Scott Tollison, provost and vice president for academic affairs. "We remain committed to holding in-person commencement exercises for our spring, summer and fall graduates that have missed out on this memorable experience due to COVID-19."
Spring 2020, Summer 2020 and Fall 2020 graduates will be recognized in-person at a point in the future when it is safe and appropriate to conduct larger gatherings.
The ceremony will broadcast from a link on the university's homepage, www.muw.edu, the afternoon of the online commencement. Graduates are encouraged to share their celebratory photos through The W's social media channels with #TheBlueForYou and #LongBlueLine hashtags. Photos and videos also may be submitted to [email protected]
The university will contact graduates once in-person ceremonies can resume. The W will continue to monitor guidelines issued by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
