Due to the rapidly evolving nature of the coronavirus (COVID-19), recommendations from Governor Pritzker and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), Resurrection University is postponing the Spring 2020 Pinning and the Spring 2020 Commencement Ceremonies until further notice. This does not affect your ability to graduate/complete your program. Students will need to fulfill the necessary requirements, and Faculty ARE working diligently now on contingency plans that will allow you to complete your didactic and clinical requirements.

We understand that families and loved ones might have arranged for travel to these events, but we ask that they check with airlines, hotels, and other agencies making accommodations in light of the pandemic at this time. We apologize for this inconvenience, and acknowledge that both Pinning and Commencement are important parts of your trajectory and celebration of your journey, but rest assured, these events will be rescheduled and there will be a new dates published soon.

Look for updates via resu.edu/covid, your ResU email, and social media (including Facebook and Twitter).
