The 2021 Spring Commencement Ceremony was held over two days at Bobcat Stadium.
The ceremonies on May 13 and May 14 drew 3,656 participants. A total of 4,235 students were approved for degrees in spring of 2021. Because of COVID-19 restrictions, the ceremony was held outside where more guests were accommodated. In 2020, commencements were a mixture of virtual and in-person ceremonies.
This year’s commencement featured Robert Earl Maxwell, former CEO of St. David’s Foundation, who received an honorary doctoral degree at the 6 p.m. ceremony on May 13; and Alan L. Tinsely, a member of the Texas State University System Board of Regents, who delivered the keynote address for the 10 a.m. May 14 ceremony.
