IMPORTANT CONVOCATION AND COMMENCEMENT UPDATE!!!!!
Unfortunately, Don Elliman, Chancellor of the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus, has made the difficult decision to cancel all spring commencement celebrations. A campus-wide communique about this will be sent later today. We support Don’s decision, which is the right one from the public health perspective as you all understand.
While we all hope that the spread of COVID-19 epidemic will have diminished by the time of graduation, all models predict that it will still be in progress and consequently large gatherings should not be held.
Please be assured that the leadership of the Colorado School of Public Health, including your student leaders, are working to create an alternate way to celebrate this important milestone, the completion of our students’ degrees from the Colorado School of Public Health. We will all remember 2020 for many reasons and the Class of 2020 will have a special story to tell.
We will be in touch as alternate plans are developed, which could include a remote celebration in May, or an in-person celebration later, such as in fall 2020. If you are a graduating student and would like to participate in discussions about alternative and safe ways to honor our Spring 2020 graduates, please email Gwendolyn Marshall (Gwendolyn.Marshall@cuanschutz.edu) to express interest.
Congratulations on your upcoming graduation from the Colorado School of Public Health. We are excited to join you in celebrating this important milestone for your academic and professional career. Part of our celebration is the annual Colorado School of Public Health Convocation -- a time when faculty and graduates from all three campuses and degree programs gather together in recognition of your accomplishments.
Traditionally hosted in May on the Anschutz Medical Campus, Convocation is similar to a traditional commencement ceremony. The event is a unique opportunity for the Dean and school to individually recognize each graduate in front of your faculty, family and friends. Please make plans to join us for the upcoming celebration.
