Plans to celebrate the class of 2021 at Pomona College are well underway with a virtual commencement ceremony set for June 6, 2021.
While some Pomona professors wish to return to face-to-face instruction provided safety precautions are taken, many have already decided they won’t be teaching in person come fall semester, even if students return to campus. In interviews with TSL, faculty expressed concerns about bringing students back to campus, job security and potential furloughs.
