UW-L postpones spring graduation
UW-La Crosse already has cancelled regular classroom instruction for the rest of the semester, conducting classes on-line only.
Now, because of COVID-19, the university is postponing its spring commencement, which had been scheduled for May 16th.
Chancellor Joe Gow says spring graduates will receive their diplomas by mid-summer.
The postponement of the ceremonies is a reaction to government orders banning large gatherings for now.
Gow says he hopes that an in-person celebration of graduation can be scheduled on campus sometime after mid-May.
