All of us at Chatham dearly hoped we would be able to host an in-person Commencement ceremony in August, but state and county regulations prohibiting large-scale gatherings and our concern for the health and safety of our Chatham community has made it clear this won’t be possible. However, we can still honor your accomplishments together, right here, right now.

December Commencement

The current restrictions on large events in Allegheny County limit event attendance to 250 individuals. As December Commencement is normally significantly larger than that limit, this poses challenges. The Commencement Committee will review options for a series of smaller ceremonies (perhaps by School or program) or a virtual ceremony and continue to monitor local health restrictions on events. Decisions on the format for December Commencement will be made by October, or sooner if possible.
