2020 Commencement Activities

Due to COVID-19 closures and social distancing protocols, Donnelly's Spring 2020 Commencement Ceremony and Nursing Pinning Ceremony have been postponed to August 1, 2020.

In order to comply with social distancing protocols and best practices, each student will be allowed to invite two guests to the ceremony. Only students, and those pinning nursing students, will be seated in the space where the ceremony is held. Guests will be seated in a separate room to watch a broadcast of the ceremony live. The event will be live-streamed online for others. Once the ceremony is complete, students will greet their guests outside (rain or shine) on the front lawn of the Savior Pastoral Center.

To keep all graduates, guests, faculty, staff and member of the Board of Directors as safe as possible, we will follow all social distancing protocols and best practices for safety and health guidelines and we will expect graduates and their guests to do the same.
