EAC cancels spring commencement, enhances social distancing guidelines
March 20, 2020
After much reflection and in consultation with public health officials, EAC announces that all spring commencement exercises will be canceled. In addition, to help slow the spread of COVID-19, EAC is implementing even more stringent social distancing policies.
“We regret that the Class of 2020 will not enjoy a traditional celebration with their classmates,” stated EAC President Todd Haynie. “We know how disappointing this decision will be to so many, but feel it is the responsible thing to do at this time. Our team is looking at alternate ways to celebrate our graduates’ achievements.”
EAC courses are still scheduled to move to remote learning when classes begin on Monday, March 30. Because each class is different, instructors will directly contact students to discuss how to make this successful for everyone.

“The health and safety of our students, faculty, and staff is our top priority,” stated EAC President Todd Haynie. “We know this is a great deal of information to process and we will provide ongoing support to enable our students to be successful in spite of this challenge.”
EAC will continue to monitor the situation and will provide instruction and updates as appropriate on the College website and through other official channels. Decisions will be based solely on official reports from the CDC, the Arizona Department of Health Services, and the Graham County Department of Health Services.
Please continue to follow recommendations regarding social distancing and proper hygiene protocols found at the Centers for Disease Control.
