Commencement 2020

In light of the global health situation, Chancellor Andrew Martin and his advisers have made the difficult decision to cancel our traditional May Commencement ceremonies (see his video message.) The School is deeply saddened that we cannot celebrate our students’ tremendous accomplishments in the traditional fashion. 

The Class of 2020 deserves to be celebrated and recognized. Even though it may look different from typical years, our goal is to find a creative and innovative way to celebrate that maintains our commitment to protecting everyone’s well-being amidst this evolving situation. The Brown School Commencement Team will develop ideas with our colleagues across campus, and we appreciate any input or thoughts you may have about how we can best celebrate Commencement achievements . If you have any thoughts or questions, please reach out to Zach Romo at
