March 26: Email to Parents on Commencement 2021 Plan

Dear Champlain parents and families,

I’m sharing with you an email below that we recently sent to your students. 

In response to feedback we heard from students regarding our plans to host a fully virtual Commencement ceremony, we invited students to participate in a survey and express their preference for one of three options—a fully virtual ceremony, a hybrid ceremony with in-person elements, or a delayed ceremony that would take place in the fall. The majority chose the hybrid option, which is detailed in the email below. As we explain below, any in-person plans are contingent upon state and regional guidance and our need to keep the health and safety of our students and our community as the highest priority. 

In preparation for the ceremony, we are requesting information from students, including whether they plan to take part in the in-person portion of the ceremony. We encourage you to visit the Commencement 2021 website where we will share updated information. If you have any questions, please contact graduation@champlain.edu

We look forward to celebrating your students in May!

Benjamin Ola. Akande
