College of Public Health Convocation


UNMC to recognize 2020 graduates through online commencement/convocation ceremonies 

Students graduating from the University of Nebraska Medical Center (UNMC) in May will be recognized through a virtual ceremony that blends UNMC’s traditional commencement and convocation ceremonies. In addition, every graduate will be given the option to participate in the December commencement ceremony or any future ceremony. 

UNMC’s May ceremonies will be held in this online format on May 7 and 9. Separate online ceremonies will be held for each of UNMC’s six academic colleges and a separate ceremony will be held for those receiving graduate studies degrees. More than 1,000 students are expected to receive their diplomas from UNMC this spring. Students who graduate in August traditionally take part in commencement ceremonies held in either May or December.
