Congratulations Class of 2020!

Hooray to the class of 2020 – you made it!! 

We love graduation because it’s the one time of year that we get to physically see the depth of beauty that we’re helping bring to our students’ lives.

Because we can’t see you in person this year, we asked our faculty and staff to submit short video messages for you. The first video is a compilation of short clips from these messages.

This 27-minute video features full-length messages to the Class of 2020 from our faculty and staff. You’ll see messages from some of the instructors and Student Support staff that you’ve come to know during your program. Throughout each of the video messages, one sentiment is universal – you’ve worked hard to get to this point, and we celebrate you.

The CGPS Student Support and Instructional Design teams collaborated on these videos to celebrate the achievement of you, the class of 2020. Cheers to a job well done, graduates – we are SO proud of you!

    Thank you and congrats to all my fellow graduates of 2020! My doctoral program took longer than expected, but through hardwork, dedication, my advising faculty, and of course my family helped me reach my goal. I wish I could be celebrating with you now, but the goal is to stay safe and afterwards utilize our newfound knowledge and success.
    Here’s to the Class of 2020…We DID IT!!!

    This is a fantastic tribute. It aches my heart that we are not able to be in Maine this weekend to celebrate together. But I certainly want to thank all of my professors and my lead advisors for pushing me to get through the rigorous doctoral program. They were second to none, and have prepared me for the next step into the future. I thank UNE and I am proud to be a Nor’easter.
