Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the University of Redlands will not be celebrating the 2020 Commencement ceremony we all envisioned. However, we still want to recognize our graduate students and their important journeys.
We invite our Spring graduates and their loved ones to return to campus during Homecoming weekend in October 2020. The University plans to hold a special event on Saturday, October 31, that will allow 2020 graduates to celebrate their hard work, perseverance, and success. This event will not mirror exactly what would have happened on April 16 but will recognize the graduates’ accomplishments in a joyful and public way.
