This weekend, thousands of FIU students will celebrate the first in-person commencement ceremonies since the COVID-19 pandemic began. These graduates include some who have used what they learned in the classrooms to make a difference during the pandemic.

“This year’s graduates exemplify perseverance. Some have been on the front lines of the pandemic response making a difference to our COVID-stricken community and all of them overcame personal challenges to stay focused on their goals,” said FIU President Mark B. Rosenberg. “We are thrilled to see them graduate and be able to celebrate their achievements in person again.”

The six ceremonies, scheduled for Saturday, April 24 and Sunday, April 25 at Riccardo Silva Stadium on FIU’s main campus, will follow COVID-19 safety guidelines including a strict capacity limit of 1,000 graduates per ceremony.
