University President Darryll J. Pines sent the following email to the campus community this morning:

Although the spring semester may have just begun, we are already looking forward to celebrating our graduates this spring. We want to honor them among family, friends and peers and celebrate their resilience and achievement. Spring 2022 graduates will be joined by Winter 2021 grads to mark a special day for our Terrapin community.

It is with great enthusiasm that I announce our campuswide Spring 2022 Commencement ceremony will take place in person at Maryland Stadium on Friday, May 20 at noon. Both Winter 2021 and Spring 2022 graduates are invited to the ceremony to celebrate their achievements.

The ceremony will also be livestreamed at commencement.umd.edu.

Commencement Speaker
We are grateful that our Winter 2021 commencement speaker, author, illustrator and Diary of a Wimpy Kid creator, Jeff Kinney ’93, will be joining us for our Spring 2022 ceremony. Since his time at the university, Kinney has found worldwide success as a cartoonist and best-selling children’s author. We are thrilled to welcome him back to campus to be part of such a monumental day for our graduates.

In Closing
We are happy to be planning an outdoor, in-person ceremony with health and safety top of mind. Additional information regarding the campuswide ceremony, tickets, regalia and safety measures, as well as the individual college and school ceremonies, will be added to commencement.umd.edu as it becomes available.

Go Terps!

Sincerely,

President Darryll Pines Signature
