Regretfully, we will not hold the commencement service in May. This was a very painful decision because this is a culminating moment for which our graduates have worked so hard, and it is one of our most sacred services of the academic year. Yet our first responsibility is the health of our community, family members and guests, and the wider public.
We will hold a postponed commencement celebration for the class of 2020 next year, May 10, 2021, in the Princeton University Chapel. We hope that as many graduates as possible will be able to return to campus to celebrate. More details of the festivities will be forthcoming.
