We recently learned that Black Lives Matter is planning a general strike and march in Seattle on the same day as the scheduled convocation. This presents a conflict for some of you, and even makes celebrating graduation difficult.

After much consideration, the Political Science Department decided to proceed with the original convocation launch schedule because many of you have been planning for this day with friends and family. Those who choose to support the protests on Friday will be able to view the convocation at any time over the next few weeks.
