Commencement

About the Weekend

The University’s 253rd Commencement is a recognition and celebration of graduating students’ academic accomplishments — a momentous and important occasion that can be experienced safely by all participants.

Brown is committed to planning and hosting our 2021 Commencement ceremonies in a manner that is healthy and safe, and fully aligned with the University’s COVID-19 Campus Safety Policy.
Planning and carrying out Commencement is a complicated, multi-layered process in a normal year, and health and safety considerations have driven much of the planning for 2021.
