Dear CU Boulder community,
It is my great pleasure to announce that our commencement ceremony this spring will return to the traditional in-person format. I am excited that our students and their families will be able to join together with our faculty and staff to celebrate the many achievements of the class of 2022.
I am also delighted to share with you that veteran journalist Tom Costello of NBC News will be this year’s speaker. Costello, who grew up in Centennial, Colorado, and graduated from CU Boulder with a bachelor's degree in broadcast journalism in 1987, spent six years at 9News, down the road in Denver. An Emmy award-winning correspondent based in Washington, D.C., he now reports daily across all NBC News and MSNBC platforms, including TODAY, NBC Nightly News, MSNBC and NBC News Now.
As we look forward to an in-person commencement, we will continue to monitor and comply with all local public health COVID-19 guidance.
We are excited to celebrate the accomplishments of our graduates at Folsom Field after a very challenging couple of years. Go Buffs!
