Graduation Recognition Ceremony 2021
The Department of Speech-Language-Hearing and Intercampus Program in Communicative Disorders Graduation Recognition Ceremony has changed this year in response to COVID-19 concerns. There will be no official Graduation Recognition Ceremony in person. A gathering for graduates is planned for May 14th and May 15th. A livestream recognizing graduates will be available after graduation. Students expecting to graduate have been notified of the gathering/recognition event. If an email invitation is not received, and you are expecting to graduate, please contact email@example.com.
The University of Kansas Commencement event has changed this year to follow COVID-19 health and safety concerns. For the Class of 2021, there will be three Commencement ceremonies on May 16 at 10:30 a.m., 2:30 p.m., and 6:30 p.m. at David Booth Kansas Memorial Stadium. For the Class of 2020, there will be one ceremony on May 23 at 10:30 a.m. Graduates can request up to six guest tickets before May 3rd. The "walk down the hill" is a fun tradition where students often bring balloons or decorate caps and gowns. Guests will not be able to congregate on the Hill, along Memorial Drive, or near the Campanile. These areas will be accessible only to graduates. All ceremonies will be simulcast at the Kansas Union and livestreamed at commencement.ku.edu. You can participate if you are planning to graduate in Summer 2021 but your name will not appear in the university wide commencement book until the following year. Additional information on Commencement ceremonies and guest information can be found at the University of Kansas Commencement website: commencement.ku.edu.
