About Commencement

The safety and security of our students and guests are of utmost importance to us. Cheney Stadium is a great, central venue, which is secure and offers plenty of seating, parking and concessions to accommodate our community.

Students, faculty, and staff have gone through some difficult times recently. It is very important that we remember to support our students, ourselves, and acknowledge the work of our students and the work that will continue beyond this event.

Live Streaming

We will be streaming graduation live with captioned video on the day of the event. We will also be providing text-only live captioning for anybody at the event who would like to read along.
