The University of Hawaiʻi at Hilo congratulates and honors its Spring 2020 graduates with a special virtual commencement video. The university postponed its traditional in-person ceremony, originally scheduled for May 16, 2020, due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

Approximately 608 students petitioned for degrees and/or certificates from the Colleges of Arts and Sciences; College of Natural and Health Sciences; College of Agriculture, Forestry and Natural Resource Management; College of Business and Economics; the Daniel K. Inouye College of Pharmacy; Ka Haka ‘Ula O Ke‘elikōlani College of Hawaiian Language; and various post-graduate credentials.

The virtual commencement video has over 730 submissions from students, faculty, and staff, and congratulatory messages from Chancellor Bonnie D. Irwin and the deans of each college.

Plans for an in-person Commencement ceremony for the Class of 2020 is underway and details will be shared at a later date.
