2021 Web-Based Celebrations

The pandemic and safety guidelines made the school re-think the way it celebrated its students during a time that spanned two commencements. With more web-based events across campus and the division, the School of Dental Medicine ensured that its graduating classes got to experience a fanfare all their own.

Student and Faculty Award Ceremonies

As an annual tradition, the School of Dental Medicine honors outstanding fourth-year students with awards that celebrate their talents, dedication, energy and endeavors. The school salutes each class through words of wisdom and farewell from administrators, faculty members and fellow students. During these ceremonies, outstanding faculty are also honored for their contributions to the success of the graduating class.

In a belated web-based ceremony, the Class of 2020 award recipients were honored during a June 1 YouTube premiere. The Class of 2021 was honored in a separate YouTube ceremony on the same day.

See below for the respective classes’ award ceremonies.
