While all in-person ceremonies are limited to graduating students only, graduates’ families, friends, and members of the public are invited to watch the ceremony live, as it's broadcast on the Yale 2021 website.

Graduates will hear addresses from Yale School of Art Stavros Niarchos Foundation Dean and Professor of Art Marta Kuzma, invited commencement speaker Greg Tate, and student speaker Amina Ross.
