2020 Commencement

As President Brown’s email on 3/26 indicated,  in-person University Commencement ceremonies have been postponed. BUMC Provost and BUSM Dean Antman followed this by saying “we are determined to celebrate all of your collective achievements and accomplishments virtually”.  In the near future, GMS will send specific details about our virtual celebration on May 14 as we are actively adapting to this changing situation. As more information becomes available we will update the GMS Commencement pages. 

We will post the new date for the in-person Commencement ceremony in late summer/early fall when available.
