Announcing plans for Commencement 2020
On April 22, in an effort to protect the health and safety of the community, Calvin University President Michael Le Roy announced the decision to postpone the university’s planned May 23 ceremony until Saturday, October 3, 2020. President Le Roy made the decision after consulting with eight student representatives, surveying the entire graduating class, and having conversations with members of Calvin’s parent council.
