The SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry (ESF) announced it will reschedule its spring 2020 commencement for its Syracuse campus in response to the coronavirus pandemic.

An exact date for the celebration of student achievement has not been determined, although there are several options under discussion, according to campus leadership.

"We are extremely disappointed to have to make this decision," Interim President David Amberg wrote in a message to students. "Graduation ceremonies are the culmination of years of hard work, accomplishments, and mark what is arguably the most important milestone in our many of our students' lives."

Senior and graduate students who have fulfilled the requirements for graduation will receive their diplomas by mail, as is usually done.

"Commencement is a cherished tradition that I and our faculty look forward to," wrote Amberg. "We will do everything we can to give you and your families and the opportunity to celebrate your hard-earned success as soon as it can be done safely."
