A Note on the NYU and Steinhardt Ceremonies
The University-wide Commencement celebrates NYU's entire Class of 2021 and does not include the calling of student names. Both Steinhardt events will include the presentation of the candidates and the calling of student names. All three events will be available to view after the broadcast.
The Class of 2021 will be invited to return for an in-person ceremony when public health guidelines permit us to do so.
