We are hopeful that Mother Nature will cooperate in the celebration, but because inclement weather is possible, we have put in place plans to ensure a safe commencement celebration.
- The ceremony is scheduled to take place rain or shine. Given the size of the gathering, it’s not feasible to move the ceremony to an alternate date.
- In the event of severe weather, the ceremony may be delayed, paused or canceled. The safety of our guests is our highest priority.
- If a schedule adjustment is required prior to your arrival, information will be shared via email, our website, social media (@UWMadison on Twitter, UWMadison on Facebook) and local news media.
- At the venue, instructions will be given via public address announcements and video screen messages. Graduates and guests are asked to listen for announcements and remain seated until instructed otherwise.
