To the Class of 2020: We know how much Commencement means to you and your families and friends. We, too, are heartbroken at missing the opportunity to celebrate in person.
This truly global community of classmates, researchers, and leaders has achieved so much: world-changing innovations, hard-fought victories, and well-deserved distinctions. Now, and always, you have shown immense resilience.
Commencement marks a season of new beginnings and hope for the future — this year more than ever. This may be the culmination of one journey together, but it marks the start of many more.
Congratulations on your remarkable accomplishments, Class of 2020. We are beyond proud of you.
