Class of 2020,

In challenging times, we realize more than ever the importance of celebration and community. We, your faculty, staff, and administrators, sincerely wish that we were enjoying your final days at the School of Dentistry and all of our celebratory events together this week. While we aren’t able to celebrate in person with you and your loved ones at this time, we know that May 8, 2020 is a day you have rightfully been looking forward to for years. We are proud of your accomplishments and wanted to acknowledge your hard work at the School of Dentistry and the importance of this date when we had planned to celebrate you. We will continue working behind the scenes with the University of Detroit Mercy President’s office to follow recommendations for public health in the Detroit area in determining the feasibility of future celebrations for the Class of 2020. For now, we want to share a website created for you to honor this special date.
