University of Michigan’s Spring Commencement will stay virtual this year
ANN ARBOR – The University of Michigan has announced that its Spring Commencement will take place virtually on May 1 at noon. During a normal year, Michigan Stadium would be bustling with graduates, their friends and family. “We still do not know what public health measures will need to be in place in May to hold events like commencement. Students’ individual names will not be read during the virtual event and diplomas will be mailed to their permanent residences. Additionally, President Schlissel announced that any graduates who missed an in-person commencement due to COVID-19 are invited to participate in any commencement ceremony of their choosing in the future.
