COVID-19 Update: Commencement Postponed
To our UTMB School of Nursing class of 2020,
Alongside our colleagues throughout UTMB Health, we are closely monitoring developments with the novel coronavirus COVID-19 and making the best decisions based on current knowledge. Due to the need for social distancing to help control the spread of this virus, we have made the decision to postpone our Commencement ceremony.
Like you, we have been looking forward to this special occasion, but we must prioritize the health and safety of our students and their families, our faculty, staff and the community. The new plans for Commencement have not yet been determined, but we will communicate those to you as early as possible.
We are so proud of your achievements and look forward to celebrating your graduation. Please monitor the SON website (nursing.utmb.edu) for further communications as they develop.
