A Letter from President Dr. Shawntel LandryAt American College of Education, the single moment each year that we most look forward to is commencement. Being an online college, all of us at ACE welcome the chance to meet our graduates and share in this important and emotional step of your journey.
I write to you today with a heavy heart to inform you that, due to the ongoing threat of the COVID-19 pandemic, ACE will transition our in-person 2020 commencement ceremony to a virtual format. Our 2020 virtual commencement will take place on our originally scheduled date, July 25, 2020.
We are working in real-time to create a meaningful, virtual ceremony that will celebrate each one of our graduates and your accomplishments. In addition, every graduate will have the option to walk in our in-person, 2021 ceremony if you wish.
I recognize this is disappointing news for you and your guests who were planning to come to Indianapolis for the July 25 in-person ceremony. I am deeply disappointed, too, as commencement is my favorite day of the academic year. But as you undoubtedly know already, these are unprecedented times, and the health and safety of everyone who is part of commencement must take priority.
Details about the July 25 virtual ceremony will be emailed to you soon. We’re excited to celebrate your accomplishments with you! In the meantime, I hope you and your loved ones are safe and healthy. I look forward to celebrating your accomplishments soon.
Dr. Shawntel Landry
President, American College of Education
