Sauk Valley Community College will host a virtual commencement with a live stream on the college’s social media channels on May 29 at 7:00 p.m. The ceremony will include messages from Dr. David Hellmich, college President, and Bob Thompson, Board of Trustee Chair.
Due to the current stay-at-home order issued by Governor Pritzker, SVCC will not be able to hold a physical commencement on campus. We know this is the highlight of the college experience for students and their families. It is a celebration of our students’ accomplishments and a sense of pride for the college. But, we must be responsible in the face of uncertainty surrounding COVID-19 and take into consideration the health and well-being of our students and the Sauk community.
To allow for our students the opportunity to participate in this monumental step in their lives, the college has decided to host a virtual commencement in which students can celebrate their achievements from the safety of their homes. Students participating in 2020 Commencement will be invited to walk in the 2021 Commencement on campus. SVCC students should check their student email for more information to participate virtually.
At this time, it is still undecided as to how and when the SVCC Health Professions Pinning Ceremony will take place. More details will be released as they become available.
