南洋理工大学宣布推迟2020毕业典礼

159天前

尊敬的南大2020届毕业生:

经过与董事会的协商,学校做出了一个极其艰难的决定:推迟原定于2020年7月21日至29日举行的2020届毕业典礼及博士学位授予仪式。

我们会在未来找一个恰当的时间举行这些毕业仪式,希望是在2021年初。届时,我们便可以安全地举行大型集会活动。保护学生、教师、工作人员和宾客的健康和安全永远是我们的首要任务。

在目前的情况下,组织像毕业典礼这样特殊而又意义重大的仪式存在着太多未知数。当然,我们也非常能够理解对于你们来说,毕业典礼是人生的一个重要里程碑。你们每个人都理应收获一场重大的庆祝活动,来表彰你们在南洋理工大学的努力和成就。

因此,在暂定于明年初举行的线下毕业典礼之前,南洋理工大学将于新加坡时间2020年7月18日(星期六)上午10点30分举办一场线上的庆祝活动,以庆祝及纪念2020届毕业生的这一重要人生历程。我们会在活动的具体细节确定后再次发布通知。

过去的几个月对我们所有人来说都充满了挑战。从1月份开始,你或许就已经遭受了一些干扰:活动的推迟或取消、从线下转为线上的学习方式。但是,你们有勇气和信心,即便疫情在你们的南洋理工大学研学旅程造成了诸多不便,你们仍能迅速适应这些必要的改变,从而顺利完成自己的学业。

我们感谢所有的学生、教师和工作人员,感谢你们在我们适应这一前所未有的“新常态”的过程中所表现出的韧性和支持。我们相信你们每个人都已奋起迎接这一时代的挑战,而你们对我们未来的希望将激励着我们不断前行。

Dear NTU Class of 2020,

We are writing today to let you know that, after consultation with our stakeholders, the University has made the difficult decision to postpone the in-person Convocation and PhD Hooding ceremonies for the Class of 2020, originally scheduled from 21 to 29 July 2020.

These important events will be held at an appropriate time in the future, hopefully in early 2021, when it becomes feasible for us to hold large gatherings without the continuing public health threat posed by COVID-19. Protecting the health, safety and well-being of students, faculty, staff and guests is our top priority.

We find ourselves in uncharted territory in planning for something as special as Convocation under the present circumstances. The Convocation is a major milestone in your lives, and each of you certainly deserves a meaningful celebration that honours your hard work and accomplishments at NTU.

Ahead of the in-person convocation tentatively targeted for early next year, the University will, therefore, also conduct a Virtual Celebration to mark this important milestone for the Class of 2020 on 18 July 2020 (Saturday) at 10:30 am Singapore time. We will inform you via your NTU email account, and the University’s website and official NTUsg social media channels, when details of this celebration event are finalised.

The past few months have been challenging for all of us. Since January, you have experienced disruptions: postponement or cancellation of events, the shift to online learning, and restrictions on how you spent your final weeks of the semester on campus with your friends. But with courage and confidence, you have adapted swiftly to these necessary changes in your NTU education journey despite the disruptions caused by the global pandemic.

We are grateful to all our students, faculty and staff for your resilience and support as we adjust to this “new normal” during these unprecedented times. Each of you has risen to the challenge of this moment, and you inspire us with hope for our future.

Sincerely,

Subra Suresh

President

Ling San

Deputy President and Provost
