Commencement - May 1-3, 2020

March 20, 2020 Announcement

In-person Commencement Exercises for 2020 have been cancelled. 

The University of Portland’s difficult decision to cancel Commencement 2020 is based on many variables beyond our control including government travel restrictions; mandates prohibiting public gatherings; and other strict limitations. Our priority is the health and safety of everyone. At the same time, we sympathize with the great sacrifice our senior students will have to make at graduation time. Plans are underway to develop a virtual commencement experience for the Class of 2020 on May 3 that maximizes the technology and resources at our disposal. Those plans will be shared with the UP community soon.

Other Commencement events such as ROTC Commissioning, Nurses Pinning Ceremony, and Baccalaureate Mass will be cancelled or held virtually. Details are forthcoming.
