Having been affected by the COVID-19, 45 graduation ceremonies were held and live-streamed by respective departments and colleges of ISU. For the very first time, the College of Indigenous Studies held an open-air graduation ceremony, inviting all graduands to attend the ceremony in traditional costumes. ISU also invited a priest from the Paiwan tribe to bless all graduands with coming-of-age rituals and encourage them to bear more responsibilities after they leave the campus.
The International College held a graduation ceremony jointly with the doctoral program and the IMBA program under the College of Management. Among all graduands, Eugene Burgos Mutuc, a faculty member from a university in the Philippines, was supported by the Elite Scholarship Program to study at the doctoral program of the College of Management at ISU, and he would continue imparting knowledge to students at his university in the Philippines after graduation.
