Purdue Northwest to seek alternatives to commencement ceremonies


In response to the rapidly changing situation with the novel coronavirus (COVID-19), and to support the public health response of the community, the traditional Purdue University Northwest (PNW) commencement ceremonies will not take place as scheduled in May 2020.

The PNW Office of the Registrar announced the decision March 19 in a message to all students who are eligible to graduate this spring.

PNW is exploring possible alternatives to honor the spring class of 2020.

“Commencement reflects the time of year where we get the opportunity to share this celebration for our graduates and the proud parents, family, friends, faculty and staff who supported them along the way,” registrar officials noted. “The ceremonies are only symbolic of your PNW accomplishments, and you should have pride in all of your hard work at having earned your degree.”
