UIU modifies format of spring commencement

After much discussion with Upper Iowa University leadership and a review of various options, UIU President William R. Duffy announced today (Thursday, March 19) the decision to transition the May 9, 2020, traditional commencement ceremony at UIU’s Fayette Campus to a virtual-only event.

“I understand an in-person ceremony is preferred, but I also have no doubt that everyone would agree that the health, safety and welfare of our students, visitors and employees drive this decision,” Duffy said. “To provide the graduates their much-deserved recognition, UIU is making arrangements to continue to celebrate this momentous occasion virtually.”

The revised schedule of virtual ceremonies is as follows:

  • 9 a.m. – Military Locations
  • 11 a.m. – School of Business and Professional Studies
  • 1 p.m. – School of Arts and Sciences
  • 3 p.m. – Andres School of Education

The 2020 graduates will be invited to be part of UIU’s 2021 Commencement, which will be held May 8, 2021.

Additional details will be posted as they become available on the University’s Commencement web page at uiu.edu/support/commencement.html.
