Commencement 2020 Update

The University of Richmond has made the difficult decision to cancel the May Commencement exercises and celebrate the Class of 2020 later this year.   

The health and well-being of our Spider Family is our highest priority. We know this decision will be upsetting for many of our graduates and their families. It is for us, too. Commencement is a tremendous accomplishment and a milestone to be celebrated with family, friends, and loved ones.

Please be patient with us as we work through the details of this dynamic situation. Safety is our number one concern. As we make arrangements for what Commencement means this year for our students, families and guests- we will update you. We understand that this announcement will come with many questions- we will do our best to answer them as best we can as quickly as possible.
