Update on Commencement for 2020 Graduates

With the record increase in COVID-19 cases in Oregon and the governor's mandated two-week "freeze", we have made the difficult decision to move the Fall 2020 Midyear Commencement to a virtual-only ceremony.

We invite graduating students, along with friends and families, to watch the ceremony and hear a prerecorded message from the president, their names read and degrees conferred. If graduates would like their photo included with their name, they may submit a photo at this link by 5:00 p.m. on November 30.

The virtual ceremony will become available for viewing here on Saturday, December 5 at 8 a.m.

Please know that it is our desire and intention to celebrate each graduate and their hard work as a George Fox Bruin!

Spring 2021 Commencement plans will be made available as soon as possible.
