Graduation Celebration Event June 2022
DCU graduation ceremonies are very special occasions for our graduands, their families and our DCU faculty colleagues. Unfortunately, COVID-19 public health restrictions meant that DCU has been unable to hold in person graduation ceremonies since the Autumn ceremonies of November 2019.
As communicated last week, planning is underway to host events to celebrate the achievements of our graduates of Spring and Autumn 2020 and Spring 2021.
While many have since moved on to further studies, research or employment we want to offer the opportunity to celebrate these achievements at an in person event on campus in June 2022.
We are planning a number of events at the Helix on DCU's Glasnevin campus between June 13th and 15th with an additional date of June 9th reserved for these events.
The exact format of the events will be communicated when we have a clearer sense of the numbers planning to attend, but will certainly include the wearing of robes, photography, recognition of academic achievements, guest ticket allocation and the opportunity to celebrate in person.
While your graduation has been completed and academically recognised by the University this event will provide the opportunity to return to DCU to mark that achievement, to reconnect with your lecturers, mentors, class, research supervisor etc which was denied to you because of the pandemic.
We hope you will plan to join in these celebrations and would greatly appreciate an early indication of your intent to attend below. (Please complete the Graduation Celebration Event Form by November 20th)

Graduation Autumn/Spring 2021
The University is hoping to organise in-person graduations for the Autumn 2021 and Spring 2022 cohort. In order to maximise the possibility that we can proceed under the prevailing public health guidelines, we are currently planning for dates in Feb and March 2022.
The Alumni Office sent the initial Graduation Celebration event email from our DCU President. This email was sent on 06 October to all alumni who had been due to Graduate in 2020 and Spring 2021. This email was sent to DCU student email addresses of alumni in this graduation cohort.
