UW Commencement

This year’s live webcast will be a historic affair, a celebration that will bring together Huskies from around the world to interact with each other and honor the graduating Class of 2021.

The ceremony will feature

  • An opening ceremony in which graduates will see themselves march in a “virtual” procession.
  • Graduates gathered with their friends, family members and classmates from around the world to enjoy the ceremony in watch groups. There will be many opportunities for graduates and their watchgroup of family and friends to be seen live, on screen, on Commencement day.
  • A personal address to the graduates by President Ana Mari Cauce
  • Conferring of degrees by Rogelio Riojas, Chair of the Board of Regents, and the turning of tassels!
  • Ongoing social media conversation
  • A “Flipbook” Commencement program complete with graduates’ name
  • Our annual mortarboard decorating contest and a chance to vote for your favorites

It will truly be an unprecedented and exciting graduation experience.
