Please see this link for special video messages from the American Studies faculty congratulating the Class of 2020. The UGIS Spring 2020 Commencement Ceremonyon May 21 has been canceled due to the COVID-19 crisis. Alternate celebration options are being discussed. In the meantime, you can still “register” at ugiscommencement.berkeley.edu/graduates to put your name on the list of students who are interested in being notified about whatever celebration is eventually organized. When a decision has been made on the alternative options, you will receive an email. Updates will also be posted here. Cal Performances is working on issuing refunds for all canceled events. It may take a few weeks for them to issue refunds for the Commencement ceremonies..
