El Camino College recognizes the importance to students, staff and faculty of participating
in our annual Commencement Ceremony. Due to the unusual circumstances of the COVID-19
pandemic and the State of California’s stay-at-home order, El Camino College is putting
the health and safety of the campus community first by celebrating this year’s ceremony
virtually. This decision was made after much deliberation and involved collegial consultation
by the Commencement Committee.
The 73rd Annual Commencement Ceremony is scheduled for Friday, June 12 at 4 p.m. using a link accessible on the El Camino College website. Students, family and friends will have the ability to listen to the 2020 student speaker and watch Superintendent/President Dena Maloney and Academic Senate President Darcie McClelland present the Class of 2020 to the El Camino Community College District Board of Trustees. Members of the platform party, which includes the 2020 Distinguished Faculty and Staff honorees and representatives of college administration, will also be part of the Commencement Ceremony. This video presentation will be followed by a custom slide show featuring the Class of 2020. Candidates for degrees and/or certificates will be invited to submit their name, degree, honors, a personalized message, and a photo in cap and gown. Further information about this event, and instructions on how to upload information, will be emailed to eligible students and posted on the college’s website.
