Spring 2019

Wednesday, January 16, 2019

Dear VCU and VCU Health Communities,

Following months of planning by our team and hearing your thoughts on VCU Commencement, I am pleased to announce that VCU will host its spring universitywide ceremony at 10 a.m. on Saturday, May 11, 2019, at the Greater Richmond Convention Center.

We are excited for this opportunity to bring all members of our community together to celebrate VCU’s Class of 2019 and grateful for our partnership with the GRCC.

We will finalize details for this ceremony in the coming weeks. Please continue to visit where we will share those details as they are confirmed. Information regarding parking, arrival times, and guest seating are already noted at

Thank you for your enthusiasm for this important universitywide event. And thank you for your patience as we continue to finalize details. I look forward to celebrating with you, your family, friends and faculty on May 11.
