2021 Spring Commencement
UND’s Spring 2021 Commencement ceremony, set for May 15, will be held online due to the ongoing pandemic.
- The announcement is being made early to allow graduates and their families to plan accordingly.
- Even though the UND commencement ceremonies will take place virtually, UND’s desire to celebrate and recognize the academic accomplishments of our graduates remains a priority.
- The virtual commencement ceremonies will be posted online May 15, and will include links to General Commencement for bachelor’s, master’s, and doctoral degrees; School of Medicine & Health Sciences Commencement; and School of Law Commencement. Each graduate will have a slide that includes their name, degree, and a submitted photo.
- Students will later receive a graduation “Hawk Pack” with their diploma, printed program, and other items. Spring graduates are also invited to return to campus to participate in a future commencement.

Bridget Pinoniemi and co-writers Grant R. Tomkinson, Tanis J. Walch, James N. Roemmich and John S. Fitzgerald showed that the muscular power of American kids improved between 1911 and 1990, which may reflect corresponding improvements in general health. Unfortunately, no recent data are available. Because muscular power is simple and easy to measure using jumping tests, we encourage researchers and teachers to monitor kids' health through the routine assessment of jumping ability.
