University of Pennsylvania’s 264th Commencement

May 13, 2020

To the Penn Community:

Since 1757, Penn's Commencement has served as a wonderful opportunity to gather together to share and applaud the impressive accomplishments of our students. In recognition of their achievements and the extraordinary circumstances the Class of 2020 has faced, we are committed to celebrating Commencement like we have never done before. On behalf of the Trustees, Officers, and Deans and their faculties, we would like to invite all members of the Penn community to join us in a very special – and fun – online celebration of the Class of 2020 at 11:00 a.m. on Monday, May 18, 2020.

Monday’s online celebration will mark their graduation and the official conferring of degrees.

But this is just the beginning.

Mark your calendars now for the weekend of May 22 & 23, 2021 when we all plan to be together again, taking the traditional march down Locust Walk to the Class of 2020 Commencement Celebration in Franklin Field.

Amy Gutmann, President

Wendell Pritchett, Provost
