Update on Davidson College's 183rd Commencement

The United States is now abiding by physical distancing guidelines through April 30. We in North Carolina are now under a “stay at home” order through most of April, and evolving analyses indicate that physical distancing will remain important at least through mid-May.

Given this, we cannot plan to hold Commencement as we normally would at the normal time. We would risk having to change course at the last minute, leaving many seniors and their families with the additional challenges that this might create. 

Once we’re through this, we will celebrate the Class of 2020's achievements and aspirations in memorable, fun ways. Davidson seniors are encouraged to provide their input in planning that Commencement celebration by emailing 2020commencement@davidson.edu.
