Wilder School Virtual Commencement

Friday, May 8 at 10 a.m.

While we will not be able to honor all of our graduates at an in-person commencement this week, graduation remains an important moment for all of us to recognize. To that end, the Wilder School is hosting a virtual commencement celebration and invites students, faculty and staff to participate. Our official commencement site, along with personalized slides from Wilder graduates, will go live on Friday, May 8 at 10:00 a.m. Join us in the celebration by tagging @VCUWilderSchool and/or using the hashtag #VCUWilder2020 on Twitter! We will be retweeting LIVE and sharing photos of graduates, faculty and staff between 10 a.m. and noon. This year’s celebration will include remarks from Dean Susan Gooden, 66th Governor and Distinguished Faculty Professor L. Douglas Wilder in addition to our two student speakers-- Benjamin Madnick and Layla Alanazi.
