On March 20, 2020, University of Maryland President Wallace D. Loh, in response to the rapidly changing circumstances surrounding COVID-19, announced the cancellation of the Spring 2020 Commencement ceremony.
"Unfortunately, there will not be an in-person spring 2020 commencement. Our graduating students have worked so hard and I know that they, and their families, would want to celebrate this milestone. I invite you to share with me your thoughts on alternative and innovative ways to recognize this occasion, vibrantly and safely. You may email me at firstname.lastname@example.org."
