Virtual Commencement is a First at Iliff

Enjoy the video recordings of Commencement 2020

Charge by Dr. Julie Todd

For the first time in Iliff’s history, the institution hosted its commencement ceremony virtually on June 5.

Thanks to the excellent planning by Chapel Dean Rev. Dr. Cathie Kelsey, the class of 2020 were able to “walk” across the stage when their names were called out to receive their degrees. They were met with deafening cheers and claps from family and friends who zoomed in for the celebration. 

Throughout the ceremony, which included celebratory songs, commencement “conversation” address between Mayor Wellington Webb and Rev. Dr. Gerald Durley, and the “Charge to Students” by Dr. Julie Todd, the virtual experience was inspiring, joyous, and unforgettable. The ceremony proceeded seamlessly without any technical issues.

We want to thank all our graduates for collaborating with us for making the virtual commencement ceremony a huge success. And again, congratulations to all of them for their hard work and for making it through the most unimaginable time of their education journey.  This is certainly a graduation to be remembered.
