Dear CU Denver Community,
I’m writing today to share some important and exciting news about our plans to honor and celebrate our spring class of 2020 graduates. When I announced the disappointing news in March that our May commencement could not take place as planned, we
asked our faculty, students, schools, and colleges to get creative. And WOW, the responses were amazing!
Inspiring ideas came from across the campus. They demonstrate the unique CU Denver spirit I’ve come to cherish. I’m delighted to report that a menu of options will be provided to our graduating class. And, our graduates can take part in as many of them as they wish.
Diploma covers and programs will be mailed to virtual graduation participants. Spring 2020 graduates should receive an email later today from firstname.lastname@example.org with additional details about
each of the options.
Graduates may also visit the commencement website for further information.
I’m very pleased we’ll have multiple ways to ensure the time-honored tradition of a CU Denver commencement ceremony for our spring 2020 graduates. They are responding courageously to the current circumstances, and navigating the uncertainty we face with grit and determination. In the best of times, earning a college degree is impressive. In these challenging times, reaching the goal of graduation is monumental.
Here’s to the Class of 2020–we can’t wait to celebrate each of you!
