A Message to the Class of 2020 and the Husson University Community

Dear Class of 2020,

Back in March 2020, Husson University made the difficult decision to postpone Commencement until October. Our hope was that the United States would have made significant progress in battling COVID-19 and the limits on public gatherings would have been lifted by then. Unfortunately, under the restrictions put in place by Governor Mills the current Maine limit on indoor public gatherings is 50 people. Nevertheless, understanding how disappointing it would be to all parties to cancel Commencement, we have developed an alternative ceremony to recognize this singular achievement.

Instead of a large Commencement ceremony in an arena, Husson will offer students the opportunity to participate in smaller graduation ceremonies via Zoom. These online ceremonies will recognize students by college or school. This will allow our graduates to be honored in their regalia with their families, friends and professors able to join these Zoom events. The graduation sessions will take place, in the early evening during the week of October 12. A save the date correspondence about each ceremony will be forthcoming.

Prior to the graduation ceremony, each student will be mailed a diploma cover and a copy of the full Commencement program. Students who earned honor cords will also receive them in the mail. Our talented faculty and staff in our New England School of Communications will be producing this high-quality presentation where every 2020 graduate will have the opportunity to be recognized.

Students who graduated in December 2019, May and August 2020, may join their school’s Zoom Commencement ceremony. These ceremonies will recognize students from the following Husson colleges and schools: College of Science and Humanities, New England School of Communications, School of Accounting, School of Business and Management, School of Hospitality, Sport and Tourism Management, School of Legal Studies, School of Nursing, School of Occupational Therapy, School of Pharmacy, and School of Physical Therapy.

Despite Maine’s restrictions on public gatherings, Husson University is determined to give all of our students the recognition they deserve for their academic accomplishments. We continue to be incredibly proud of the Class of 2020, and look forward to seeing you in your regalia online as part of your special 2020 Commencement ceremony.

 

Best regards,

Robert A. Clark, Ph.D., CFA
