While the changes to this spring semester have been unexpected and unprecedented, it is also important that we celebrate the educational accomplishments of the Class of 2020. To mark the conferment of degrees, there will be a virtual celebration on May 16. The conferral of degrees is an important milestone in the academic career of all of our graduates, and this moment will not go uncelebrated. This virtual event will not take the place of an in-person event and we are hoping to reschedule commencement soon.
Please join President Michael A. Fitts and our very special guests for a livestream event on Saturday, May 16, 2020. Prelude with slideshow and musical performance by Dr. Michael White begins at 1:45 p.m. CT. The main program will begin at 2 p.m. as we bring together the class of 2020. Tune in to the livestream at tulane.edu/TUgether2020.
