In alignment with RISD’s plan for a de-densified campus in 2020-21, RISD Weekend is being planned in a virtual format that will take place in early October. Dedicated programming for both families and alumni will be offered. Details will be forthcoming.
Unfortunately, due to public health guidelines on public gatherings, RISD Craft will not be an in-person event. We are exploring options for the possibility of an online event.
Commencement for the Classes of 2020 and 2021 will take place on June 5, 2021 as a joint ceremony in Providence as public health guidelines allow.
Reunions, which have traditionally been part of RISD Weekend in October, will move to early June to coincide with Commencement. In June 2021, we look forward to welcoming back the Class of 2020 as well as alumni with class years ending in 0, 1, 5 and 6.
