Dear Class of 2020,

As you know, planning for Commencement this year has had many twists and turns as the pandemic unfolded. We made the decision several days ago to change to a virtual ceremony to protect the health and safety of our IHP community and those who would be in attendance. In response to student concerns about having the event on a weekday in August, we asked the class representatives to solicit feedback from their classmates and let us know if there was a preference for which day of the week to hold this milestone event. The students have a clear preference for Sunday, August 30. So, August 30 it is!

The virtual Commencement will be held at 2:00 p.m. followed by a virtual cocktail party at 4:00 p.m. The Commencement Committee is hard at work to make this a special event for you, your family, and your loved ones. I am looking forward to a joyous celebration in honor of you and all you have accomplished. The Commencement Committee will be reaching out to you with more detailed information.

So mark your calendar (again) for August 30 at 2:00 p.m.

All the best,


IHP Communications
