WARWICK, R.I. (WLNE)  – The Community College of Rhode Island (CCRI) has announced it will return to in-person commencements at the Dunkin’ Donuts Center in Providence on May 12.

While details are being finalized, CCRI will welcome the Classes of 2020 and 2021 alongside the Class of 2022 for commencement ceremonies.

“Commencement is the day the CCRI community gathers together with family and friends to celebrate the hard work and dedication that led our students to this tremendous academic achievement,” said CCRI President Meghan Hughes. “Every graduate deserves that moment of recognition when they cross the stage to receive their diploma as friends and family cheer them on. After a two-year hiatus, I am so pleased we are able to provide our graduating students with a traditional commencement ceremony with all the pomp and circumstance the day brings. And, what will make this commencement even more memorable is having the Class of 2020 and Class of 2021 join us in the celebration.”

CCRI held virtual commencement ceremonies in 2020 and 2021, including an in-person “Grad Walk” last year where graduates crossed the stage in a pre-recorded ceremony at CCRI’s Knight Campus. For more information on the coming commencements, visit the CCRI website.
