Cabrini to Host In-Person Commencement Ceremony with Social Distancing

Posted on 8/6/2020 2:24:52 PM

RADNOR, Pa. (August 6, 2020) — Cabrini University will host its 60th Commencement Exercises on campus Saturday, honoring the Class of 2020 and a limited number of guests with three separate ceremonies to be conducted in accordance with Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf’s COVID-19 social restrictions, as well as social distancing and sanitization guidelines established by the Center for Disease Control and Department of Health.

“The Class of 2020 has demonstrated great resiliency in achieving this milestone during a time of worldwide crisis, and I am thrilled to honor these students with the proper commencement celebration they deserve,” said Cabrini President Donald B. Taylor, PhD. “Our administration, staff, and faculty have planned this event with meticulous attention to detail so that all may enjoy a safe and memorable commencement.”

The three rain-or-shine ceremonies will be held at 9am, noon, and 3pm under a large tent on the Upper Athletic Field. The tent’s capacity will be limited to 250 people in assigned, distanced seating. Seats and surfaces under the tent will be sanitized before and after each of the three sessions. Face masks will be mandatory on campus at all times.

The event follows Cabrini’s Virtual Conferral of Degrees, which conferred a total of 507 degrees on 324 undergraduate and 183 graduate students on May 17.
