Montana Tech Cancels In-Person Graduation Ceremony


Today, the Office of the Commissioner of Higher Education directed all Montana universities to cancel all in-person commencement ceremonies. Montana Technological University will follow this order and will not hold its 2020 commencement ceremony in-person.

The university launched its Phoenix Recovery Committee to reinvent campus events for both prospective and current students. The commencement ceremony is a significant project the team is focusing on. The group is comprised of individuals from a diverse cross-section of campus departments, focused on finding creative and effective solutions under the current circumstances while embracing the opportunities to move Montana Tech forward.

The committee is currently surveying graduates to gather their feedback on a ceremony. The university is committed to making sure we honor and celebrate our graduates. The university will issue plans for the 2020 event early next week.
