Graduation and convocation
We will be hosting a Virtual Convocation on this page for all UM graduates and will include celebratory speeches, student awards and the recognition of all February and Spring 2020 graduates.
On June 29, 2020, UM will convene online for a Virtual Convocation ceremony, where each participant's name will be read and recognized.
