Subject: GGC's Spring Commencement and Investiture

Dear GGC community,

GGC continues to follow the guidance put forward by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Georgia Department of Public Health (DPH) and the University System of Georgia (USG) regarding closings and other matters to allow for further state assessment of COVID‑19.

Among the activities that are being canceled and rescheduled for a later date is GGC’s spring commencement. It was originally scheduled to take place May 14, 2020. Students will still be able to graduate, consistent with academic standards, but the actual ceremony will be canceled until a later date. Details about the rescheduled event will be forthcoming as they become available.

Additionally, the investiture of Dr. Jann L. Joseph as GGC’s third president that was scheduled for April 24 has also been canceled and will be rescheduled for a later date.

For the full list of canceled and/or rescheduled events, please visit the GGC FAQ page, which will be updated as new information is provided.

Office of the President
