President Trauth announced the cancellation of in-person commencement ceremonies, scheduling virtual ceremonies for Aug. 6, 7 and 8.
In an email to the university, Trauth said the commencement feasibility work group exhausted several plans to hold in-person commencement but determined it would not be possible.
“As President, Commencement is my favorite time of year. Like many of you, I am disappointed that we cannot come together in person to celebrate this special occasion. However, I take comfort in knowing that we are doing the right thing to protect our Bobcat family and the greater San Marcos community,” Trauth said.
The University Star will update this story as it develops.
