More Yale celebrations

Due to the cancellation of the university-wide commencement ceremony, Yale has developed a dedicated website, which serves as a virtual portal to the alternative celebrations planned for this May. The sites presents daily featured videos, images from campus and from graduates’ current locations around the world, and opportunities to connect via social media using the hashtag #Yale2020. On May 18, at 11 a.m., President Salovey will deliver remarks via the Yale 2020 website, including congratulations to students and conferral of their degrees.
