The Pierce College community celebrated a unique virtual commencement ceremony on Friday, June 19, 2020. Under normal circumstances, the entire college community would have come together at the Tacoma Dome to celebrate our special grads, but instead had the opportunity this year to enjoy the celebration virtually, from the comfort of their own homes.

The college’s first-ever virtual commencement awarded 3,580 degrees, certificates and diplomas. More than 63 percent of this year’s grads are the first in their families to go to college. The youngest graduate is 16 years old, and the oldest is 65.

This year’s ceremony takes place on Juneteenth, a date commemorating the freedom from slavery in our country. On this day in particular, the college reaffirms its commitment and accountability to continue its relentless pursuit of equity, peace, and justice for Black and other historically marginalized communities.

Pierce College’s virtual graduation website also includes a downloadable graduation program, and will remain available for viewing until June 2021.
