“The weekend of September 11, 12, and 13 is now currently planned to include all divisional recognition ceremonies, where the graduates will gather with their friends, families and loved ones, to have their names called and to cross the stage,. It will be a unique and special occasion at the Miami football game, with all in-game activities focused upon our graduates, and it will also include, at game’s end, the Class of 2020, gathering on the field in their academic regalia to form the beveled ‘M.’
“We were all extremely disappointed with the need to cancel the commencement ceremony planned for May. Commencement is a cherished occasion for our graduates to celebrate with family, friends, faculty and staff, to have their name called, walk across the stage and receive their diploma.
“For our students, we recognize that these unprecedented times have impacted your studies. Early this week, (Miami officials) will provide additional information about how you will be provided with enhanced flexibility for course grade options for this spring semester, including credit/no credit.”
