It’s showtime

Congratulations to the approximately 450 students, who will be recognized for earning their respective degrees during today’s May 8 ceremonies. UIU is making a number of modifications to its traditional in-person commencement to create a safer and healthier environment for its graduates and guests. The university held a virtual commencement in 2020.

Joining the graduates in celebrating their latest accomplishments will be UIU administrators, faculty, staff, alumni, family and friends. A maximum of four guests per graduate will be permitted to attend the in-person events.

To properly maintain physical distancing, UIU will host three ceremonies May 8. Graduates of the University’s School of Business and Professional Studies programs will participate in a 10 a.m. ceremony. A second ceremony will be held at 1 p.m. for the School of Arts and Sciences, while the Andres School of Education, and graduates of the MBA, MEd, MPA, MSA and MSC programs will follow at 3:30 p.m. Masks are required by everyone in attendance during each ceremony.
