Commencement Postponement

Dear Members of the Trinity Community,

The following note announcing the postponement of Trinity’s 194th Commencement ceremony scheduled for May 17, 2020, was shared with our Board of Trustees and members of the Class of 2020 earlier this morning. This is a challenging time for all of us, particularly those who are related to or who know a high school or college senior trying to reconcile the hopes they held for the spring semester with the reality of the situation we currently face. We are doing our best to realize plans for an alternative Commencement ceremony, which will allow seniors to commemorate this special moment at a later date. In the meantime, we want to express our gratitude for the outpouring of kindness and generosity we’ve witnessed from the entire Trinity community during the last few weeks and ask that you continue to take care of one another.
Joanne Berger-Sweeney

President and Trinity College Professor of Neuroscience
