Congratulations to the Class of 2020!
LACIS is proud to announce that eight seniors graduated from the program with bachelor’s degrees this spring, and two additional seniors will be completing their LACIS major this summer! Unfortunately, LACIS was not able to host its usual celebration event due to the pandemic, but a virtual event was held on May 1, 2020 to recognize the accomplishments of these seniors. LACIS staff wishes to thank all of the students, staff, and faculty that attended the online celebration.
The celebration included a brief keynote speech from LACIS Director Kata Beilin and remarks from LACIS Associate Director Alberto Vargas. A recording of the event, along with an automated transcription, is available for those that were unable to attend. You can view/listen to the celebration HERE. (Please note that you will need a password to sign in: Kgj5EhZ8).
The campus-wide commencement held this past Saturday (May 9) is also viewable online with the program published as a news article.
LACIS wishes the best to the graduates and is looking forward to seeing what they accomplish next!
