2021 Department of Economics Virtual
Graduation Celebration

June 7, 2021 | 4:00 PM | View the Celebration

A link to join the celebration will be posted on our website prior to 4:00 PM on Monday, June 7. We recognize that graduates and guests will be watching from all over the globe, so the link will be available for a number of days following June 7.  Speakers will include our Department Chair and our 2021 Distinguished Alumnus, Honorable Justice Charles Johnson.  We will also hear from the Economics Undergraduate Board, and are excited to celebrate our PhD and Bachelors’ degree recipients. 

The UW and the Department of Economics are partnering with a vendor called Stageclip to create slides of our graduates and will have a recorded presentation of our speakers.

A Graduation Celebration program will be posted on our department website and can be downloaded at your convenience. If you do not want your name printed in our event program, please email as soon as possible so that we can accommodate your request. 

We recognize that many of you are saddened that we cannot celebrate your accomplishment in person this year, and we share that disappointment with you.  However, we are excited to be able to celebrate you in our virtual Graduation Celebration and wish you success and happiness moving forward.
