Commencement Weekend

The University will honor the Class of 2020, which had their Commencement activities delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and the Class of 2021 during Commencement and Reunion Weekend on Friday, April 30, to Sunday, May 2, 2021.

The timing for this year’s Commencement is earlier than usual, due to the University's Plan for a Healthy and Safe 2020-21 which includes a three-term calendar that will reduce the density of students on campus and give all students the opportunity to spend two semesters on campus.  

In the coming weeks, further details about the weekend will be communicated and added to this website, including additional scheduling information, transportation, accommodations, and other details. Planning assumes that public health conditions allow large events to safely take place, and dates could shift if public health guidance prompts changes to Brown’s academic calendar.
