Commencement Contacts

Commencement Update: In a statement to the wider University community on March 20, Harvard President Larry Bacow said that this year's Commencement, which would have taken place on May 28, must be postponed. However, each School at Harvard, including HDS, will host its own special online event and afterwards deliver diplomas through mail. Once it is safe to gather together again, an in-person celebration will occur. Read his full message.
