In response to the global coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, The University of Toledo has decided to cancel spring commencement ceremonies.
The University’s undergraduate and graduate commencement ceremonies planned for May 9 in the Glass Bowl, College of Law commencement set for May 10, College of Medicine and Life Sciences commencement scheduled for May 15, and all college convocations and honors programs planned for April and May are canceled.
“The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has recommended that no large events be held with 50 or more people for the next eight weeks, and we will heed their advice,” said Dr. Karen Bjorkman, provost and executive vice president for academic affairs. “This was a difficult decision because commencement is a treasured University tradition, but, as always, the health and safety of our campus community is our top priority.”
Graduates who planned to participate in the spring commencement ceremonies are invited to participate in the University’s fall commencement ceremony planned for Dec. 12 in Savage Arena.
