Robert J. Bernhard, vice president for research, to keynote 2020 Graduate School Commencement Ceremony
Bernhard, who has announced plans to retire in the near future, has served as vice president for research since 2007. Bernhard, who is responsible for research infrastructure and support programs for all disciplines of research, scholarship and creative endeavor, has directed the research of more than 50 graduate students and co-authored more than 170 papers and conference publications. Before joining Notre Dame, Bernhard served as associate vice president for research at Purdue University.
The Graduate School Class of 2020 featured 238 doctoral degree recipients and 590 master’s degree recipients. “I am so pleased that Bob will address our 2020 graduates,” said Laura Carlson, professor of psychology and vice president, associate provost and dean of the Graduate School. Notre Dame closed campus and moved to remote learning in March 2020 because of the pandemic, suspending traditional campus activities, including 2020 commencement events, well into the summer.
The Class of 2020 Commencement Celebration is an opportunity for undergraduate and graduate alumni from the class of 2020 to return to campus and participate in traditional commencement activities, including commencement Mass and ceremonies, college/school ceremonies or celebrations and a variety of social events, over Memorial Day weekend, May 27-30.
