Concordia University Ann Arbor Class of 2020 - today is a big day!

While COVID-19 has forced us to make some changes to our traditional commencement experience, we didn’t want the end of the semester – and thus, your official entry into the ranks of CUAA alumni – to go unnoticed.

The fact is we’re so proud of you, and even though we can’t tell you so in person, we can tell each of you – personally.

We began this project with our May 2020 graduates and have added the December graduates to the mix as we celebrate the entire Class of 2020 during today’s virtual commencement ceremony.


Once on the graduation site, select the “find your name” tab. Click on the first letter of your last name, and scroll down to find your message from a CUAA faculty or staff member. There’s one for each of our 235 graduation candidates.

See you at the Virtual Commencement Ceremony at 2 p.m. ET! Visit to tune into the livestream.
