Class of 2022 Commencement

FriMay20
- Main Athletic Field behind the Campus Recreation Center, Bristol Campus

Roger Williams knows and values the importance of graduation and commencement to recognize all of our student accomplishments on their journey to earn a degree and what it means to them and their families and us. We continue to actively plan for an in-person Commencement Ceremony for the Class of 2022 this spring! Final implementation of our in-person design and health and safety measures to follow will be shared as we approach closer to the event date and have a sense of Covid numbers and any RI Department of Health guidance or large event requirements in place at that time.
