Commencement 2020

Message from the President

Campus community,

Sonoma State is committed to continuing to educate our students through this semester even as we navigate the shelter-in-place and other public health orders emerging during the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Given this rapidly changing environment, we have made the decision to protect the health and safety of our students, faculty, and staff by postponing Spring 2020 Commencement and cultural celebrations. Please know that this was a very difficult decision, but also know we are not canceling, just postponing graduation ceremonies until it is safe to celebrate our graduates.

I know that these are difficult and unprecedented times for all of us. But we have been resilient before. I am confident that we will persevere with compassion for one another and our community. Thank you for following all public health orders and helping us keep our entire Sonoma State community healthy and safe. 

With gratitude,

Judy K. Sakaki
