The University of Massachusetts Amherst

Welcome from Chancellor Kumble Subbaswamy

Greetings graduates, family and friends of the Class of 2020! Of the many things I missed about not being on campus this spring, our annual commencement ceremony is at the top of my list. Celebrating the achievements of our graduates together as one is easily the best part of my job. Even though world events have rendered that impossible, we still want the Class of 2020 to know how extraordinarily proud we are of you. This virtual celebration is our expression of love and hope for our graduates at a time when we could all use a lot more of both.
