Final Exercises 2020 will not proceed as planned.

In light of the evidence about the likely progression of the virus over the next couple of months, and when it will peak, we have made the difficult decision that Final Exercises will not take place as planned and plans are being made to consider other alternatives. We do not make this decision lightly, as we know how disappointing it will be to graduating students and their families. That said, a team is already focused on developing creative alternatives to mark this important occasion for the Class of 2020, which includes holding Final Exercises at a later date. We will communicate updates, directly to the graduating class of 2020, as we have them in coming weeks.

For the moment, however, we will need to focus on the safety and well-being of our community, students, faculty, staff and UVA Health care providers.
