Information for Faculty

Campbell University is pleased to announce in-person commencement exercises for Spring 2021 graduates. The College of Pharmacy & Health Sciences’ ceremony will be held on May 7 at 3 p.m. in Barker-Lane Stadium.

Events at Barker-Lane Stadium will require ticketed assigned seating. Guest tickets will be limited and quantities may vary by ceremony, depending on the number of participants. For planning purposes, current projections will allow for at least two (2) guests per graduate. However, finalized ticket numbers for individual ceremonies will be communicated by ceremony coordinators. Under North Carolina’s COVID-19 restrictions, social distancing and face coverings will be required for all events. All ceremonies at Barker-Lane Stadium will be live-streamed.

Additional details including finalized ticket numbers and ticketing instructions will be communicated to graduates no later than April 16. These events will occur rain or shine. In the event of extreme weather, the events will be moved to a virtual format.

For 2020 graduates, plans are quickly coming together for a celebratory ceremony on Sunday, May 9 in Barker-Lane Stadium. Graduates will be permitted to reserve tickets for up to two guests. Further details will be communicated in the coming weeks.

As with any event or plan during pandemic times, the University continues to monitor ever-changing conditions and local, state and federal health guidelines. The arrangements detailed in this message may be subject to change, depending on public health conditions and state regulations. We discourage guests from making any non-refundable travel arrangements. We appreciate your continued patience and will continue to communicate details as they are confirmed.
