ULM Postpones Spring/Summer 2020 Commencement

Jul 15, 2020

The unexpected summer outbreak of COVID-19 and additional orders by Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards to curb the spread of the virus, led the University of Louisiana Monroe to postpone the Spring/Summer 2020 Commencement Ceremony set for Aug. 8, 2020.

 

“When commencement was rescheduled for August, everyone believed we would be in a better place with COVID-19. Unfortunately, that is not the case,” said ULM Interim President Edwin Litolff, Ph.D.

 

The University of Louisiana Monroe hosted a University Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Forum from 6-7:30 p.m. on Tuesday, June 9, 2020, at Fant-Ewing Coliseum.<

The university invited students, faculty, staff, and the public to attend and share ideas on how to accelerate diversity and inclusion at the university.
