CPH Graduation Celebration


Dear students, 

As many of you know, UGA will be hosting in-person commencement ceremonies in May for undergraduate and graduate students.

In order to safely hold the event, commencement ceremonies for undergraduate students will be staggered across three days. College of Public Health students will be celebrated in the evening on Saturday, May 15th.

UGA’s graduate student commencement ceremony will be held in the morning on Friday, May 14th.

You can find more information about each ceremony, along with safety guidelines, ticket details, and alternative participation opportunities at commencement.uga.edu

CPH will not be hosting additional commencement events. We know that this may be disappointing for many of you, but we feel that the rate of transmission in our community is still too high to host a large, in-person gathering of our faculty, staff, students and families. 

However, this does not diminish the pride and excitement we feel for you and your accomplishments. We are proud of all you have done and will do to advance the health for all.

Please do not hesitate to reach out to us if you have questions. 

Dean Marsha Davis
