Important Graduation Update for the Class of 2020
In light of the evidence about the likely progression of COVID-19 and when it will peak, UVA Final Exercises and Darden Graduation weekend activities, previously scheduled for 16–17 May, will not take place as planned.
The University of Virginia did not make this decision lightly, and Dean Scott Beardsley, the Darden faculty and staff know how disappointing this decision is for graduating students and their families. The Darden School is working with UVA to develop creative alternatives to mark this important occasion for the Class of 2020, which includes holding Final Exercises and Darden Graduation at a later date. UVA and Darden will communicate updates directly to the graduating Class of 2020 as decisions are made in the coming weeks.
The School’s top priority is the safety of students, members of the Darden and local communities, visitors, and guests. Find more information on UVA's response to COVID-19 on the University’s coronavirus website.
