On that Saturday, at 10 a.m., Prairie View A&M University will hold a virtual commencement ceremony for the Class of Spring 2020. In light of the coronavirus crisis, the university commencement committee has created a safer alternative to honor the academic achievements of 910 graduates.

James A. Wilson, Jr., Ph.D., university commencement chairman, said because of the pandemic pivot that PVAMU and the world have made, the committee chose “PVAMU Stronger Together” as the graduation’s celebration theme.

“The Commencement Steering Committee selected this because we know that the Panther Nation will emerge from these challenging times even more resilient and determined to continue the legacies of our great university.”

If the current restrictions banning large gatherings are lifted, the Spring 2020 graduates will be able to participate in a traditional commencement ceremony in August. The university has plans to merge the Spring 2020 ceremony with the August 2020 graduation ceremony.
