Statement on incident at graduation ceremony

Office of the President
May 6, 2018

During one of this weekend’s commencement ceremonies, we were inappropriately aggressive in rushing students across the stage.  I personally apologize, and am reaching out to the students involved. The practice has been halted for all future ceremonies, and we will work to make sure all graduating students know we are proud of their achievements and celebrate with them their graduation.

Warm Regards,

W. Kent Fuchs
President
University of Florida
