Spring 2021 Commencement Community Events
The Spring 2021 Commencement will be held virtually on Friday, May 21, 2021.
Commencement mass and commencement ceremonies for CAS, SOE, SOL, SOM, and SONHP will be streamed on USF's Commencement website, YouTube, and Facebook pages. For any other community events related to Spring 2021 Commencement (whether they are zoom events or video recordings), we highly encourage you to promote them on the USFCA and MyUSF calendars. Any commencement community event that is listed in the USF calendar will also be displayed on the events feed on our main Spring 2021 Commencement website.
To add your event to the calendar, first book the event through our Events Management System (EMS). Once the event is booked, it will import into our web content management system (Drupal) where you can add photos, detailed description of the event, photos, and RSVP links.

Once you book your event on EMS, please send an email to Web Services, so we can confirm its import into the Drupal system and ensure its inclusion on the Spring 2021 Commencement website events feed.
Videos for Events
If you are creating a video recording for your event and would like it hosted on the web, we recommend working with your department to post the video clips on your department’s Youtube, Facebook or other social media accounts. If your department does not have a YouTube or social media presence, you can email firstname.lastname@example.org to request your video's inclusion in USF’s Youtube Spring 2021 Commencement playlist. All videos must be received by May 10.
There will not be an official commencement hub on myUSF to host videos this spring, but if you plan to embed or link to any YouTube video on your department's MyUSF website, we ask that you include closed captioning and a transcript. If you only plan to add your video to a YouTube playlist, you can use the YouTube auto-captioning feature, and do not need to include a transcript. View more information on our Video Transcripts and Captions page.
