Full-time faculty members are required to participate in their department's ceremony for both Spring and Winter Commencement, unless excused by the Dean. Adjunct faculty members are encouraged to participate. All faculty must RSVP by May 12.
Important instructions will be given at lineup. 30 minutes before the ceremony starts lineup in CC 311 with your full academic regalia. Faculty members are part of the processional and recessional and sit on stage during the ceremony. Under the direction of the marshals, the graduating class will process into Benson Great Hall first, followed by faculty, and then program personnel. The recessional order is opposite.
If you are part of the program personnel, report to the President's Office (CLC 234) 20 minutes before the ceremony starts.
Wear your full academic regalia, including cap, gown, and hood. If you do not own regalia, you may rent or purchase it through the Campus Store. Email Brenda Edinger at firstname.lastname@example.org for details. Orders must be placed at least 1 month prior to the ceremony to ensure delivery.
