2021 UO Commencement Will Be Virtual

University of Oregon

The University of Oregon announced Tuesday that graduation will be virtual again this year.


The UO cites the public health risks and state orders barring large gatherings due to the COVID-19 pandemic. 

There will be a live webcast of the ceremony on June 12th. Vice President for Student Life Kevin Marbury said it was a hard decision.

 He encouraged graduates and their families to participate in the festivities by sharing photos, messages, and videos for the virtual event. 

“We have exciting things planned for the live virtual event and look forward to having our graduates and their families tuning in to celebrate with us,” Marbury said.

Instructions on how to personalize slides and a complete schedule will be listed on the commencement website in spring term.

Question about the festivities can be directed to commencement@uoregon.edu.
