Class of 2020

Celebrating the Class of 2020

Thursday, May 13, 2021 at 7:00 PM

It is our genuine pleasure to invite the Miami University Class of 2020 graduates and their families back to their alma mater for an in-person graduation ceremony this May at Yager Stadium in Oxford. The ceremony will include remarks from President Greg Crawford and 2021 Commencement speaker Dr. Carolyn Jefferson-Jenkins, and each graduate in attendance will be individually recognized as they walk across the commencement stage.

Class of 2020 graduates received an email with a link to register to attend the ceremony. Those who registered will receive further communication in the coming weeks about guest tickets and more.

To maintain social distancing and to meet capacity limits, we expect each graduate will be able to invite up to six guests to the ceremony. Guests will have assigned seats in “pods” that are socially distanced from other attendees. All participants, graduates, guests, and staff will be required to wear a face mask and maintain social distancing during the events. Please note, the ceremonies will take place rain or shine and will be live-streamed for viewing by those unable to attend in person.

Please check back frequently, as further details will be posted as they become available.

We are grateful for your grace, patience, and understanding as we have all navigated this global pandemic together. We look forward to celebrating with you, in-person, on May 13.
