Virtual Commencement Ceremony
- Public Event
The virtual commencement will air on June 12, 2020, at 10 a.m. Pacific Daylight Time on commencement.caltech.edu/watch.
The ceremony will include remarks from President Rosenbaum and Board Chair David Lee, special remarks from notable Caltech alumni and friends of Caltech, and the conferral of undergraduate and graduate degrees. During the degree conferral, individual student names will be read by your deans and division chairs, just as they would at a typical in-person commencement event. In addition, the virtual nature of this event provides us the opportunity to create a personalized slide for each graduate to accompany the reading of names.
This event, as announced in the April 16 community message from President Thomas F. Rosenbaum and Provost David A. Tirrell, is the first part of our two-part celebration of Caltech's 2020 bachelor's, master's, and doctoral candidates.
We look forward to a meaningful recognition of the manifold accomplishments of Caltech's 2020 graduates and the opportunity to welcome them as the Institute's newest alumni.
