University of Detroit Mercy to honor 1,404 graduates at virtual commencement exercises Nov. 15  
DETROIT—University of Detroit Mercy (Detroit Mercy) will honor fall 2019 and winter and summer 2020 graduates at three virtual commencement ceremonies on Sunday, Nov. 15. The McNichols Campus graduate and undergraduate ceremony will be at 1 p.m.; the School of Dentistry at 2:30 p.m.; and the School of Law at 4 p.m. 
Although Detroit Mercy normally honors graduates in early May of each year, the COVID-19 pandemic has required many institutions and organizations to make alternative plans for commencement. President Antoine M. Garibaldi hopes that the University will be able to celebrate the achievements of all students with their families and friends in person at Calihan Hall in the future.
“All of our graduates have worked extremely hard and although we cannot congratulate them in person, we hope that these virtual commencement ceremonies will convey to them how proud we are that they are now University of Detroit Mercy alumni,” he said.
Students, family, friends and colleagues are invited to visit the Commencement 2020 website and participate on Nov. 15 at In addition, everyone is encouraged to share photos and videos with Detroit Mercy by tagging @detmercy on Twitter or Instagram and using the hashtag #DetroitMercy2020.
