Evangel University announced that due to the COVID-19 outbreak, their 2020 commencement is going to be a virtual event on Saturday, August 15, at 11 a.m..
The Commencement, Evangel’s 62nd annual graduation event, will also include the 47th commencement of the Assemblies of God Theological Seminary.
“Evangel University is planning an in-person celebration for 2020 graduates in May 2021,” President Carol Taylor said in a statement. “All of this year’s graduates are invited to return and participate in the May 2021 Commencement.”
Evangel alum Steve Grant will be the commencement speaker. The Emmy Award winner was awarded the Distinguished Alumnus Award by Evangel in 2010 and is on the Wall of Honor in the Communications Department.
Graduates who planned to be a part of in-person commencement will receive their academic regalia in the mail.
