The President of Dublin City University, Prof Brian MacCraith, has today written to DCU graduates to inform them that, following the careful consideration of a range of factors associated with the evolving COVID19 situation, both nationally and internationally, the University has decided to postpone the Spring graduation ceremonies that had been scheduled for March 21st.
As this event would have involved significant travel for graduates and their families, the University considers that it is in the best interests of all concerned that this non-critical event is postponed.
At this time we are prioritising the deployment of University resources for the development of contingency plans associated with potential changes in the delivery and assessment of academic programmes over the coming weeks and months, in the event of a curtailment or suspension of normal academic activities.
The University regrets any inconvenience caused to graduates, their families and guests and trusts that everyone involved will understand why this decision has been made. An alternative date for the ceremonies will be considered and communicated over the coming months.
