Winthrop University Postpones May 2020 Commencement

Winthrop University has postponed MAY 2020 commencement ceremonies due to the global COVID-19 pandemic and restrictions on event sizes.

 Dr. Hynd, Interim President stated: 

 “Although these circumstances are beyond our control, we can assure our students that their Winthrop experience will not end without recognizing and celebrating that they will be Winthrop graduates.  At this time, we cannot say when or how commencement will happen, but we will rejoice in their accomplishments and honor our graduates in a way and time that is safe to do so.”

 We will continue to keep our graduates, their families and the Winthrop community informed as plans develop.
