Graduating student with medal

Message from the President

Dear Fresno State Community,
Interim President Jimenez-Sandoval

Commencement is just around the corner and I am looking forward to sharing in the joy of our talented students as they obtain their degrees from Fresno State! 

We are incredibly proud of our graduating seniors, who have accomplished so much and persevered through adversity.

This May, we will be celebrating the achievements of our graduating class virtually. I know there are fun plans underway to honor our 2021 graduating students, as well as our 2020 grads.

While we won’t be able to have any in-person events, we have learned that there are many ways to celebrate in a virtual world. I am sure we will see some real creativity this year!

A campus committee is working on Commencement plans and we will share more information as we draw closer to the May celebrations.


Saúl Jiménez-Sandoval, Ph.D.
