College of Medicine and Life Sciences - Commencement

Virtual Commencement 2020

Please join us in celebrating our
UToledo College of Medicine and Life Sciences
Class of 2020!

Launch the Virtual Commencement experience

The site features multiple videos that students, along with their families and friends, can select and watch in any order and at any time. The main video features photos and videos submitted by the Class of 2020 of their time at UToledo. Graduates and their families can also watch video speeches from students and University leaders congratulating them on their successes (see featured speakers below).

Each graduate is personally recognized with a custom online graphic display featuring their name, degree, residency information, photo and a recording of their name. Visitors to the website can search for a specific name, sort by degree, or scroll through all 200+ names of our graduating students.

Videos and content will remain online throughout 2020.

For your convenience, you may also watch the playlist of videos on our YouTube Channel, which will automatically play one video after the other.
