2020 SGPP Graduate Graduation Ceremony - CANCELLED

It is with heavy heart that the ISS Graduation Ceremony, scheduled for Saturday May 16, 2020 has been cancelled.  Our first priority is the health and safety of our students, families, friends, and communities. The University of Arizona has cancelled all convocations and commencements due to COVID-19.
