Virtual Graduation Invitation

Dear International Student Graduates,

ISS is in the planning stages of building a virtual graduation celebration to recognize your many accomplishments at UW-Madison throughout your program.

We are gathering nominations of students, faculty, and staff that have positively impacted your college career, or your time in Madison. If you would like to nominate someone, please fill out the Google form for the individual to be given a shout-out during our celebration. If you are interested in giving a short speech as an international student speaker for one of our two virtual sessions, please fill out the Google form.

While we cannot hold an in-person ceremony, we hope to conduct a formal livestream celebration to congratulate all of our international student graduates on Saturday, May 9th starting at 9:00am CST (Madison time). More information on how to access the ceremony will follow in the next few weeks. Additionally, ISS plans to host an informal Instagram takeover on the last day of classes – Friday, May 1st at 9:00am CST- to both congratulate graduates and to give encouragement for finals week. Please follow @uw_iss on Instagram in preparation for our graduation celebration activities. Feel free to share your favorite Madison memories with us on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter with the hashtag #GlobalBadgerGrad20 for a chance to be featured on our social media or in our graduation ceremony!
