Last Thursday, the SPJ board voted unanimously to form a student committee to explore the possibility of a hybrid graduation ceremony for the Columbia Journalism School cohort graduating in Spring 2021.
The board has received significant interest from students about the possibility of a hybrid ceremony since SPJ meetings began at the start of the school year. While a conventional ceremony is unlikely, this committee will work with university officials and CJS administrators to determine if there's an alternate model for a convocation ceremony that allows graduates to celebrate their accomplishments while remaining safe and in compliance with local and university health guidelines.
This committee is open to all students. Sign up using the form below:
