Alumni videos for graduation celebration

Published on April 7, 2020

Due to COVID-19, the University of Iowa has decided that all commencement ceremonies for Spring 2020 will be held virtually. Although it’s extremely disappointing to miss out on the many traditional celebrations that accompany the commencement season, we are excited to have the opportunity to recognize our graduates and all that they have accomplished.

We invite alumni to participate in the celebration by submitting a short (10-15 second) video to potentially be included in the College of Public Health’s virtual ceremony. These could be messages of congratulations, thanks, inspiration, etc. Please submit videos by Friday, April 24.  We cannot guarantee that all submissions will make it into the ceremony due to time constraints, but we will include as many as possible.

How you can participate …

All videos and pictures can be submitted/uploaded here.
