In light of the recommendations made by the U.S. Government and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and with the health and well-being of Graceland students, employees and our local communities in mind, Graceland University has made the difficult decision to postpone the Spring 2020 Commencement Ceremony until October 4, 2020.
The hard work and accomplishments you have strived for over these past years here at Graceland deserve to be recognized. It is extremely important to all of us in your Graceland family that your memory of your time on the hill be given proper closure with a ceremony that celebrates all that you have achieved.
To that end, we are excited to share with you that Graceland will hold the Spring 2020 Commencement ceremony on the Sunday of Homecoming 2020. This unprecedented time deserves a unique and unprecedented celebration, and we can think of no better way to honor your accomplishments than by celebrating with you during the homecoming weekend that will mark Graceland’s 125th year of existence.
Complete details are yet to fully be determined, but seniors set to walk this spring will have the choice to be recognized in a rescheduled commencement ceremony Sunday, Oct. 4, 2020. In order to provide the most flexibility, seniors may also choose to walk in the Fall 2020 (December) or Spring 2021 ceremony.
