Western Illinois University said it is planning to hold in-person graduation ceremonies this spring.

The ceremonies in Macomb will take place at Hanson Field, which is the school’s football stadium.  The Quad Cities ceremonies will be held at a yet-to-be-named outdoor venue in Moline.

The ceremonies will take place the weekend of May 14-16.

The university said details are being finalized to ensure compliance with pandemic protocols. Details will be provided on the WIU Commencement website.

Western said the “individual staged Commencement experience” originally scheduled for from March 24-April 18 has been canceled.
