The Faculty and Staff of the Department of Environmental Studies at the University of Colorado Boulder cordially invite our graduates and their invited guests to the ENVS Department Commencement Recognition Ceremony on Friday, May 6, 2022. 

RSVP is required. All students who have applied to graduate from ENVS in spring 2022 and summer 2022 will receive an invitation and students are asked to RSVP for the ceremony on behalf of themselves and their invited guests. Seating in our indoor ceremony space is limited, so students have been asked to keep their guest list to 5 other individuals or less. More event-specific details will be sent to all graduates directly in the coming months.
