Earlham to hold virtual Commencement on May 9
Earlham College will hold a virtual Commencement for the Class of 2020 on Saturday, May 9. There will be no event on campus.
The virtual ceremony will recognize graduates from Earlham College, the Earlham School of Religion, and the College’s Graduate Programs in Education. The decision to hold a virtual commencement instead of hosting the ceremony on campus is in response to the continuing coronavirus pandemic.
The schedule for releasing the videos will follow the usual plan for Earlham commencement day events: A baccalaureate video will be shared at 10:30 a.m. (Eastern) with James Logan as the baccalaureate speaker and a graduation ceremony will be available at 2:30 p.m. (Eastern). All videos will be shared on this webpage.
During the May 9 proceedings, members of Earlham’s Class of 2020 and their faculty, friends and families are invited to gather online as graduates are recognized and degrees conferred. The College is committed to inviting the Classes of 2020 back to campus for in-person celebration as soon as reasonable. Please mark your calendar and join us in celebrating the accomplishments of the Classes of 2020!
We will print our traditional Commencement Program honoring our students and Margaret Hampton as she retires. Programs, diplomas, letters of College and Departmental Honors and the class t-shirt will be mailed to graduates in June.
