2020 PiN Graduate named as GSAS Commencement Marshal

May 20, 2022
Ivan Santiago

One of our 2020 PiN graduates is among the Commencement marshals chosen to represent the Doctor of Philosophy.
Each year, the GSAS Student Council (GSC) chooses its Commencement marshals to represent the School’s graduating class. Marshal nominations are made by members of the GSAS community, including students, the nominee’s graduate program administrator, or Harvard faculty. To be selected a GSAS marshal is considered an honor for a graduating student and is one of Harvard’s most well-loved Commencement traditions.

On March 20, 2020, the University announced it would be necessary to postpone the in-person May 28 commencement exercises.

The university hosted an online graduation program on Thursday, May 28th, 2020, at 11:00 a.m. to honor our Harvard Class of 2020. You can learn more about how the university will honor our 2020 and 2021 graduates who missed out on in-person ceremonies at https://www.harvard.edu/commencement-for-the-classes-of-2020-2021/

The marshal chosen from the 2020 PiN graduating class is:

  • Ivan Jacinto Santiago, PhD, Program in Neuroscience
