Faculty Participation


Given that UC Riverside will continue to offer instruction remotely in the fall due to the surge in COVID-19 cases in Riverside County, it is unlikely that we will be able to host the postponed in-person Commencement ceremonies on campus at the end of Fall Quarter 2020.

We will continue to follow guidelines established by the United States Center for Disease Control and Prevention and abide by orders from California Governor Gavin Newsom and the Riverside County Public Health Officer before determining appropriate dates for the postponed in-person ceremonies. Information regarding those ceremonies will be communicated to graduating students and their families approximately 3 months prior to the ceremony dates, so that they can plan accordingly.

Be a Part of the Celebration!

UCR's ladder-rank faculty, adjunct professors, visiting faculty, lecturers, supervisors of teacher education, librarians, and academics all play a critical role in the education and growth of our students and contribute to their success both inside and outside the classroom.

You are invited to celebrate with the graduates, their proud family members and friends at the Class of 2020 Online Celebration on Sunday, June 14, 2020 at 2:00 p.m.

A link to the UCR Class of 2020 Online Celebration will be posted on the Commencement homepage on Sunday, June 14, 2020 at 1:55 p.m.

Due to the campus closure until June 19, 2020, in-person Commencement ceremonies will be postponed until it is safe to reschedule. We will not be taking faculty registrations or regalia orders at this time. The registration link will be posted here once the in-person ceremonies have been rescheduled.
