MCCCD Spring 2020 Graduation Ceremonies Canceled
By Lisa Padilla - Friday Mar 27, 2020
The Maricopa County Community College District (MCCCD) is continuing to navigate the rapidly changing COVID-19 situation. To protect the health of MCCCD graduates, their families and friends, and faculty and staff, all in-person Commencement and Convocation ceremonies scheduled for April and May 2020 have been canceled.

“We are as disappointed as you with this development,” said Dr. Steven R. Gonzales, Interim Chancellor. “Commencements and the surrounding celebrations are the best events of our year, so it was not an easy decision to make, but we must put health and safety first, adhering to the direction state and local governments have given.”

While the ceremonies are canceled, MCCCD is exploring other options to bring together Maricopa graduates and their families at a later date in other venues when groups can celebrate without health and safety concerns.

The Maricopa Community Colleges will continue to keep the community informed of new developments and new actions as they are taken.
