Camden: Thursday, May 27, 1:00 PM

In Camden, Class President Lauren Bess will be one of the student speakers. Professor Adnan Zulfiqar also will speak and Co-Dean Kimberly Mutcherson will host the ceremony.

Camden held its virtual awards ceremony on May 25 at 4 p.m. You can view a recording here. Passcode: 1@qvLzML. Note that three students' names were inadvertently misspelled in the recording. That error was not replicated on diplomas or certificates, and has since been corrected on the powerpoint.

In Newark, Candice Iheme will be the student speaker and Professor John Kettle will be the faculty speaker. 

A portion of each ceremony will be live and that the graduates will have the opportunity to see each other during the live stream.
