Please reserve April 30 and May 1, 2021, for a series of virtual commencement celebration events. We’ll be inviting your input into these celebrations later this spring. And plan on coming to Dubuque in August 2021, to hear our guest lecturer and former UDTS professor, Rev. Dr. Amanda Benckhuysen, and to participate in special meals and activities planned for 2020 and 2021 graduates. We’ll provide you with more details about these plans over the coming weeks.
