Commencement

Commencement Weekend

May 27-29, 2022

Commencement is an important milestone for all Brown students — the culmination of their educational journey as undergraduates, graduate or medical students. This year’s events will have additional significance as the University welcomes back our Class of 2020 graduates to celebrate their achievements two years after the COVID-19 pandemic cut short their time at Brown.

Members of the Class of 2020 and the Class of 2022 will be invited to participate in their own dedicated Commencement ceremonies, as well as other Commencement and Reunion Weekend activities and traditions. Visit your class page below for more information.

After a two-year delay due to the global pandemic, the Class of 2020 will make a joyous return to College Hill for a highly anticipated celebration in person.
This year’s graduates can expect an exhilarating experience packed with a full schedule of events, kicking off with Campus Dance on Friday night and running through to Sunday’s Commencement procession through the Van Wickle Gates.
