Interim Chancellor Sheryl Van Gruensven shares a message with May grads thanking them for their passion about Commencement and reassuring that while the May 16, 2020 ceremony is cancelled, graduates will still have other opportunities to celebrate—a postponed ceremony, walking in other ceremonies an alternative format or possibly a combo of all three! Watch the video.
“Hello, UW-Green Bay Class of 2020. I’m Interim Chancellor Sheryl Van Gruensven.
We love your passion and desire to celebrate your UW-Green Bay experience with a commencement ceremony.
We share that passion. When we talk about reimagining, please know that all options are being considered. That includes rescheduling the event, inviting the Class of 2020 to walk in a future ceremony, holding the event in an alternative format—or quite possibly a combination of all of these.
Please be patient with us. After we weather this storm, we will announce a new plan. You’ll be the first to know when we’ve got one.
Take care, continue to stay safe, and healthy, finish your studies and stay passionate”
