June 8, 10 a.m.

The Rutgers School of Environmental and Biological Sciences will stream an online virtual convocation ceremony at 10 a.m. on Monday, June 8, 2020.

This unique event will include brief comments from Executive Dean Robert M. Goodman and Dean of Academic Programs Laura Lawson, as well as from your fellow graduate Jeremy Posluszny, followed by the individual recognition of every January, May, and August graduate of the school.

Every graduate will be recognized in alphabetical order with a slide that includes your name and major(s), as well as a picture and quote (both provided by you). In addition, each student will be able to upload a short (12-second) personal video that will be incorporated with your recognition slide and other visuals into a short video that you can download, share with family and friends on social media, and keep forever.

Graduates, we hope that this virtual convocation will help you celebrate and share your enormous accomplishment. You will receive an email describing how to upload your photo, quote and video. Please comply promptly with the instructions outlined there to ensure that you are properly recognized in the Virtual Convocation.
