Evangel Moves Commencement to August

Evangel University has announced their commencement ceremonies are moving to August 15, 2020.

The move comes after the University surveyed more than 500 spring graduates about their thoughts on graduation events.

“We had an 84% response rate to the survey, and of those who responded, 84% prefer a traditional Commencement postponed until August,” President Carol Taylor said in a statement.

Evangel’s 62nd Commencement will take place at 9:30 a.m. in the Central Assembly auditorium, 1301 North Boonville in Springfield.

The 47th Annual Commencement for the Assemblies of God Theological Seminary will be part of the same ceremony. The schools combined graduations in 2018.

Speaker for the event is 1976 Evangel graduate Steve Grant of KY3.
