2018 Commencement Ceremony

Assessing our Graduation Plans in Sint Maarten

On September 6, 2017, Hurricane Irma had a devastating impact on Sint Maarten, home to AUC’s medical sciences campus and the traditional site of our commencement ceremony. Since then, Sint Maarten has come together to "Build Back Better" with businesses, organizations, and local infrastructure improving on a daily basis.

Our goal is to keep AUC's graduation ceremony in Sint Maarten, but we must first assess the anticipated availability of a sufficient venue for this event as well as accommodations for guests. We are meeting regularly to understand this situation and will provide more information about graduation as we develop those plans.
