On Wednesday, July 23, 2020 Goldey-Beacom College (GBC) President Colleen Perry Keith announced the Class of 2020 Commencement Ceremony is postponed until spring 2021.
Graduation was first delayed from its traditional date in May 2020 to November 2020 to coincide with Legacy Weekend. Because of the continuing spread of COVID-19 in our region and the cancellation of many large events through the end of the year, it was decided to wait until spring to revisit the options.
“We understand the inconvenience, the frustration and the disappointment this brings to our graduates in the 2020 academic year,” said Dr. Keith. She continued, “However, the health and safety of students, faculty and staff is extremely important.”
A new date has not been set. Goldey-Beacom College will continue to update its website with decisions as they are made –
Founded in 1886, approximately 1,800 students are enrolled from 22 states and over 60 nations. The College offers 41 degree options in its graduate and undergraduate programs with majors in psychology, economics, criminal justice, English and all areas of business including accounting, business administration, entrepreneurship and finance.
