Tufts Announces University’s First Virtual Commencement Ceremony

In light of the unprecedented public health crisis we are currently facing, Dean Rachel Kyte has announced that The Fletcher School’s 2020 Commencement ceremonies will be moved online.

A Fletcher team is working on plans for a virtual commencement celebration that will include key elements that we associate with this special occasion. 

Our plan is for a dynamic, interactive, inclusive and indisputably “Fletcher” ceremony that will be meaningful and memorable in order to adhere to social distancing policies. We will be tapping into our community of students, faculty, and staff for your ideas.

Please stay tuned for more detailed information over the coming weeks.
