On May 17 at 6 pm CET, John Cabot University held a hybrid Commencement to mark the conclusion of the academic year and to honor the Classes of 2020 and 2021. Graduates were given the choice of attending the event in person or remotely. The event took place in full compliance with the anti-Covid19 safety protocols established by the Italian government. Families and friends had the opportunity to follow remotely.
In order to hold this hybrid, socially-distanced event, the University used several terraces and courtyards, and one large indoor space, with students divided into groups according to majors. Each group of students received their degrees from their respective Department Chairs or senior faculty. We availed ourselves of sophisticated technology to broadcast and view images on screens in each area and to make the event accessible remotely.
