Rice University May 2020 Commencement ceremonies have been postponed. As soon as this public health crisis has passed, we will announce and begin preparing for an on campus ceremony in our Academic Quad to celebrate our Spring 2020 graduates. We do not know when that will be, but we will provide ample notice. In the meantime, we are forming a committee to design and launch an online commencement ceremony for all who will complete their degree requirements at the end of this semester. The online ceremony will be held on Saturday, May 16, and we will share details of this event in the weeks ahead. The names of all graduating students will be read online, but all students are also welcome to attend the on campus ceremony when that occurs.
Please stay tuned for additional updates. For updates related to the Rice campus, please consult Rice’s crisis management website.
