KIRKLAND, Wash. – Lake Washington Institute of Technology (LWTech) will hold its first in-person commencement since 2019 this Friday, June 17, 2022 at 2 p.m. at Meydenbauer Center in Bellevue, WA. 

LWTech’s commencement ceremony will also honor graduates from 2020 and 2021, and Distinguished Alumni honorees from the past two years who were unable to experience this cherished tradition due to ongoing COVID-19 pandemic restrictions.

“Commencement is one of my favorite days of the year,” said Dr. Amy Morrison, president of LWTech. “The past two years have been challenging for many, and to once again be able to gather and celebrate the great accomplishments of our graduates is something that I’ve so looked forward to doing. I can’t wait to see our graduates from 2020, 2021 and 2022!”

LWTech will be live-streaming the event. For more information, or to watch this year’s commencement ceremony, visit
