COMMENCEMENT 2020 - May 16th Ceremony CANCELLED

CIIS has decided that, in the interests of preserving the health of our students, families, and community, we will not hold our traditional Commencement Ceremony this year.

Yesterday, the CDC issued guidance that large events scheduled for the next eight weeks be canceled. The ceremony is only slightly after that.

Alternative options to celebrate your accomplishments are being explored and will be communicated as more information is available.  We know how important the ritual and experience of Commencement can be, and look forward to finding ways to honor you and your degree while keeping our community safe.

Thank you for your understanding during these challenging times.
