Lee Business School Commencement 2020 Update

Nov. 17, 2020

Dear Class of 2020 Graduates,

First and foremost, congratulations! We are so proud of all you have accomplished. We know it hasn’t been easy. We applaud your perseverance, strength, and ability to pivot. 

For Spring graduates, when we were unable to have a commencement ceremony in May, we had hoped it was just postponed. For Summer and Fall graduates, we had hoped to celebrate your graduation with an in-person event. With the ongoing situation, however, we are forced to change our celebration to a virtual commencement ceremony. We recognize this is not ideal, but we are embracing the opportunity to celebrate you in the best way we can right now.  

Commencement activities for all 2020 graduates will be held on Tuesday, December 15, and will have two parts:

•    A university-wide event will be held for Spring 2020 graduates at 10 a.m. and at 4 p.m. for Summer 2020 and Fall 2020 graduates. We anticipate this event will last between 40 to 60 minutes. More information about this event can be found at unlv.edu/commencement. 

•    Immediately following the UNLV event, the Lee Business School will host a live virtual commencement using an exciting new platform called Remo, which will allow you to have some interaction with the other students and faculty members attending. To be included in this event, you need to:   

1.    Click the link below and register to attend. Every Lee Business School graduate who registers will receive a special graduation gift package in the mail. Even if you are unsure if you will attend the virtual event, I strongly encourage you to register so you will receive the link to allow you to attend the event AND the graduate package in the mail.

2.    Check your UNLV email account for an email from GradImages. As part of the LEE event, we are creating a slideshow to highlight each of you. Everyone who is registered for the event will be included in the slideshow. But, in addition, we would also like to include your photo and/or a personal quote (if you desire). You must follow the instructions in the GradImages email to have those extra things included to make our slide show even more personal for you.

Spring 2020 Graduates can register to attend the Lee Business School Commencement Celebration here: https://forms.gle/spY4HDc7K6JmBmdAA

Summer 2020 and Fall 2020 Graduates can register to attend the Lee Business School Commencement Celebration here: https://forms.gle/DJBCn5fqYvdeoS1L8

The deadline to register for the Lee Business School commencement celebration and to submit a photo and/or quote for the slideshow is Monday, November 30.

Our commencement celebration will be a live and interactive experience, and only graduates will be able to use the Remo platform for the event. However, we understand the importance of sharing this special occasion with your friends and family, and we will be providing a live stream link the week prior to the commencement so they can watch the celebration.

All the details about this year’s virtual commencement celebration can be found at unlv.edu/business/leegrad. If you have questions or need special accommodations, please email leegrad@unlv.edu.

Again, we are so proud of you and look forward to seeing you on December 15.
