Please Review COVID Guidance for Commencement

Our 75th commencement activities are underway, culminating in graduate and undergraduate ceremonies this Saturday, May 21. If you are planning to attend commencement and related activities, please read on for important details.

In light of an increase in COVID-19 cases on campus, in the region and surrounding states, Wilkes University strongly encourages the use of face masks during indoor commencement events on Friday and Saturday. Though we have taken precautions to reduce the risk by limiting the number of guests of graduates, the commencement set up in the McHale Athletic Center makes social distancing a challenge. Wearing a mask may protect you and your loved ones from contracting illness.

Thank you for your support and consideration. We are so pleased to celebrate our graduates with you this weekend!
