As many of you are already aware, campus announced that the Spring 2020 General Commencement is postponed indefinitely due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Campus has recommended that colleges, schools, and departments find alternative ways to honor this year's graduating class that don't include formal ceremonies. In alignment with this recommendation, it is with mixed feelings that the department cancels its Spring 2020 Commencement Ceremony, previously scheduled to take place in Zellerbach Hall this May.


Math staff and faculty leadership are actively working to identify solutions to celebrate and acknowledge the accomplishments of the Class of 2020. If you have any ideas you'd like to share with us, feel free to email Christine Tobolski at ctobolski [at] berkeley [dot] edu. Otherwise, you can look forward to hearing more from us in the coming weeks via this website and messaging to our students.


In the meantime, we in the department hope that everyone is staying safe and well.
