Celebrating Fall Graduates

December 11-12, 2020

This fall semester has presented unexpected challenges and yet you have persevered to complete your degrees. The hearts of CUCU’s faculty, staff and administration join you in grief over having to postpone the face-to-face celebrations of your achievements. In this difficult time that tests our patience and resilience, we encourage each of you to learn from your experiences and continue to grow as an individual and child of God.

Four separate virtual ceremonies will take place to honor and acknowledge the Class of 2020. Please note that degree completion is a separate process from the ceremonial rite of commencement and will not be affected or delayed by the ceremony format.


Virtual Commencement Ceremonies

We celebrate the achievement of the Class of 2020 during these special, virtual ceremonies. Live video streaming links will be available on the day of each ceremony.
