  • RMU is seeking staff volunteers to help out with the Class of 2020 Commencement ceremony taking place at 9 a.m. on Saturday, June 12, in the UPMC Events Center for graduates who earned a bachelor's or master's degree in 2020. Because of the pandemic, these graduates only got to have a virtual ceremony last year, and now is the time for RMU to make good on its promise to give them an in-person event. If you would like to volunteer, please email University Registrar Daniell Matthews at
