Re: Fall 2020 Commencement Ceremonies

I am excited to announce that the University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff will host our Fall 2020 commencement ceremony on December 11, 2020. This celebration will be extremely special, because it is at these ceremonies that we will celebrate our Spring 2020 and Fall 2020 graduates. As of this moment, unless the pandemic makes these events an impossibility, we will host two ceremonies in order to accommodate both the Spring 2020 and Fall 2020 graduating classes.

The development of the ceremonies is underway, and we believe it will provide an inspirational celebration for all of our graduates. All of us understand that these ceremonies for the Spring 2020 graduates is a little later than we planned, and that all of the graduates have worked exceedingly hard to overcome many of the challenges to have the opportunity to be celebrated in a public way. We certainly want to provide all of the Spring 2020 graduates an outlet to celebrate in a traditional commencement ceremony, as the current restrictions are lifted to have large gatherings. We will share more information about this celebration as we get closer to the event.

As always, stay safe and Go Golden Lions!
