Countdown to Commencement
Saturday May 7, 2022
The Board of Trustees, the Interim President, the Faculty, Staff, and Students of Sterling College Cordially Invite You to Attend the Commencement Ceremony for the Class of 2022.
Fatuma Emmad will present the Commencement Address. Fatuma is the Co-Founder, Executive Director, and Head Farmer of FrontLine Farming, a BIPOC- and womxn-led nonprofit farm, and farmer advocacy and food justice organization that strives to create greater equity across its regional food system.
The ceremony will be held under a tent on Saturday, May 7th, at 1:00 pm. Sterling is a mask optional but mask-friendly campus.
There will be a live-streaming option for those unable to travel. Livestream will be available via https://www.facebook.com/SterlingCollegeVT. You do not need to be a Facebook user to access this link. Please note, our wifi and service is limited. We may experience interruptions in the live-streaming capabilities. We will, however, be recording the ceremony and a full length video will be posted to our YouTube channel early next week.
We look forward to celebrating those individuals who completed their degree requirements between Summer 2021 and Spring 2022.
