The Ivy College of Business will honor spring and summer 2020 graduates with a virtual convocation video, which will premiere at 5 p.m. on Friday, May 8, on the college’s Spring 2020 Convocation website.

The convocation video will include messages from Raisbeck Endowed Dean David Spalding, Associate Dean Valentina Salotti, Ivy faculty and staff, and spring and summer 2020 Ivy graduates.

“Like families and organizations around the world, our community has to find new ways to forge ahead in these challenging times,” said Spalding. “Our team at the Ivy College of Business has worked with students, faculty, and staff members to create a meaningful alternative to our traditional convocation ceremony.”

The convocation website includes student-submitted photos and messages. These statements would typically be read as graduates cross the stage during the convocation ceremony. Students and family members will be able to download a convocation program, which, like the video, will list the names of all graduates.

Spring and summer 2020 graduates also will be invited to participate in the college’s fall 2020 convocation ceremony on December 18, in Hilton Coliseum.
