May Commencement 2021
Commencement is an important time of celebration for you, your loved ones, and all of us who work to support you throughout your time at Unity College and beyond. After much deliberation, Unity College has made the decision to offer a virtual commencement ceremony for May 2021 in lieu of an in-person ceremony. This difficult decision is shared with strong consideration given to the current state of COVID-19, the restrictions around large gatherings and travel for those coming from out of state, the increased number of students and guests who would be included as a result of the last two commencement ceremonies being held virtually, and the safety of our students, their families, and Unity College employees. Read more about this decision here.
We are excited to celebrate our graduates, even during these challenging times. While we are not able to gather in large numbers, we will continue to develop the ways in which we offer virtual commencement ceremonies. Any student who graduated during a time when we could not offer an in-person commencement due to COVID-19 is welcome to join us at our next in-person commencement ceremony. We will continue to provide updates here.
Commencement will take place online at unity.edu on May 15, 2021 at 11:00 a.m. EST.
Danni Washington will be Unity College’s commencement speaker for our May 2021 event. Danni Washington is the host of TV’s Xploration Nature Knows Best and co-founder of Big Blue & You, a nonprofit organization dedicated built to inspire and educate young people about ocean conservation using media and the arts.
