Glen Oaks to postpone commencement amid COVID-19 outbreak

Commencement ceremonies scheduled for May 8 at Glen Oaks Community College have been postponed in light of the recent COVID-19 outbreak.

“We had been holding out on making a decision regarding this event,” said Dr. David Devier, Glen Oaks president. “But with the direction of today’s ‘stay at home’ order in Michigan, it’s obvious that we need to move forward with different plans.”

“We recognize and value the hard work of our students, and commencement is an important part of their college experience,” said Devier. “We will be providing further details for our graduating students over the next few weeks.”

As previously announced, for the safety of the campus community, the college switched to an online teaching format of March 16.
