Dear Lake Land Students,
It is with a heavy heart that we announce the cancellation of the 2020 Lake Land College Commencement ceremony in accordance with guidelines from the CDC to limit gatherings during this coronavirus pandemic. The Lake Land College Board of Trustees, faculty and staff congratulate all of you who will be celebrating the completion of a degree or certificate this spring. We are exploring other opportunities to honor you and recognize your accomplishments.
Lake Land College’s Commencement, John Deere Tech honorary luncheon, nursing and dental hygiene pinning ceremonies and graduations for GED and Pathways students would exceed the guidelines established by the CDC and Illinois Governor to limit gatherings to fewer than 50 people in the next eight weeks.
Although we are cancelling these celebratory events, it does not minimize your academic achievement. Admissions & Records will continue to process Intents to Graduate for the Spring 2020 Semester.
We thank you and your families for understanding this difficult decision. We know that all of you share in our goal of preventing the spread of the COVID-19 disease, but we understand the impact of this decision on you and your family.
Please watch your Laker Email, COVID-FAQ page at https://www.lakelandcollege.edu/covid-19faq/ and the Commencement website at https://www.lakelandcollege.edu/admissions/graduation/ for our plans to celebrate your accomplishments!
Dr. Josh Bullock
