Update on Dartmouth Commencement and Tuck Investiture


March 31, 2021

Dear Students,

This afternoon during Dartmouth’s Community Conversation, Provost Helble announced an updated timeline for commencement and investiture celebrations.  Dartmouth’s commencement ceremony, which celebrates all graduating Dartmouth students—undergraduates, professional-school students, and graduate students alike, will take place Sunday, June 13 at 11:00 a.m. at Memorial Field.  This is when degrees are officially conferred.  The plan remains for this ceremony to take place in-person, and all graduating Dartmouth students are encouraged to attend. Graduates’ family and friends will be able to view the ceremony online. Because health and safety precautions are expected to still be in place, only the graduates and an as-yet undetermined number of faculty and senior administrators will be allowed at the in-person ceremony.

Tuck marks the culmination of our MBA education with a celebration known as Investiture.  Our Investiture will now take place on Friday, June 11 at 11:00 a.m. at Memorial Field. While this day and time have changed slightly, the plan for Tuck’s Investiture remains an in-person celebration for students. Tuck deans and a number of faculty will also be physically present.  Similar to Dartmouth Commencement, we do not anticipate that guests will be allowed.  We understand the importance of this milestone—and the strong desire of Tuck Partners, Tiny Tuckies, Tuck Parents, family, and friends to honor your accomplishments with you.  We will continue to think of creative ways for these community members to be involved in our celebration.

With dates and times now finalized, we can shift our focus to the more fun and personal aspects of Investiture planning.  We look forward to partnering with you to create an Investiture celebration that is truly special and befitting your historic and resilient class.

Thanks very much.


Dartmouth has formed a high-level task force to plan for and manage possible disruptions related to the COVID-19 coronavirus outbreak, monitor federal and state recommendations, implement guidance, and communicate with our community.
