Correction for Spring Commencement Cancellation Announcement

Email, March 17, 2020

Dear ENMU Students, Faculty and Staff,

During this extraordinary time, we are committed to ensuring a safe and healthy environment, resulting in some difficult decisions.

Today we prematurely sent out a message saying we were cancelling Spring Commencement. After discussion with Terry Othick, president of the ENMU Board of Regents, this decision will be delayed until the Regents can review more information and make a decision at the April 10 Board of Regents Meeting. 

We deeply regret any confusion this may have caused and we thank you once again for your understanding, patience and citizenship during this challenging time that requires all of us to apply flexibility and creativity in a variety of new ways as a community.

Please stay current on all campus updates at
