April Hicks, Conferral Specialist
Julie Straus, University Program Specialist

Western Carolina University’s commencement specialists, Julie Straus and April Hicks will discuss changing definition of commencement ceremonies, before, during, and after the pandemic. The pair will share lessons learned along the way and changes they have made that most likely would not have happened without the COVID interruption of “business as usual.” From pre-planning through the actual event, we will share what our institution has experienced and welcome input by attendees regarding their “new normal” for Commencement.
