2020 Commencement Congratulatory Celebration
May 17, 2020 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm EDT
MUIH invites you to join us online on May 17 as we recognize and congratulate this year’s graduates and our student and faculty honorees. This was to be the date of our 2020 Commencement ceremony, and while we’re not able to gather together in-person we can nonetheless celebrate and widen the festivities to those who otherwise would not have been able to attend.
On May 17 our website (https://commencement.muih.edu) will feature our graduates and honorees, congratulatory greetings from MUIH President Marc Levin, and recipes from the nutrition department for a mock champagne toast and chocolate brain boosters to help you join in the celebration.
We also invite you to join us on social media on May 17 to share how you are celebrating the completion of your program and what you are doing with your newly minted degree. Join the celebration by using #IAmAnMUIHGrad and @MUIHealth in your own social media posts and sharing of MUIH’s posts.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, MUIH has decided to cancel its 2020 University Celebration and Commencement ceremonies on the weekend of May 16-17.
We know that Commencement is the culmination of students’ hard work, perseverance, and dedication. It is also a time of joy for graduates and their family and friends, and we have not made this decision lightly. Given the latest guidance from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) on large gatherings and travel related to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have made this decision out of an abundance of caution with the health and safety of our community members and their families as a top priority.
The Commencement Committee is already working on plans for alternative celebrations to occur online to honor our graduates and both student and faculty awardees. We will provide those details as they become available and hope that you will participate. Additional details will be distributed to the MUIH community and posted on the Commencement website (https://commencement.muih.edu) as they become available.
Graduates will have the opportunity to return their unused regalia with a refund. Directions will be emailed to graduates.
Spring graduates will receive their diplomas in the mail 8-10 weeks after the end of the spring trimester.
Graduates who would have participated in the 2020 ceremonies are welcome to participate in the 2021 University Celebration and Commencement ceremonies, scheduled for May 15-16, 2021. Graduates will be contacted as details about this ceremony become available.
