NAU Cancels In-Person Spring Commencement

NAU canceled their in-person commencement ceremonies in May. A "virtual commencement" is planned, according to a statement from NAU President Rita Cheng released late this afternoon.

The May graduates are invited to a "special ceremony on Saturday, December 12" with RSVPs being sent in the next months.

Cheng said, "this decision is necessary to ensure the safety, health, and well-being of our community during this unprecedented global health crisis."
