Dr. Fauci will reportedly speak at the May 7 “comeback ceremony” at Michigan Stadium for 2020 graduates who weren’t able to have an in-person ceremony due to COVID-19.

According to the university, Fauci has also been recommended for an Honorary Doctor of Science Degree. 

U-M said journalist Maria Shriver will be the main speaker for the April 30 ceremony, which will honor 2022 graduates.
