Commencement: Faculty

Please familiarize yourself with the Weekend Guide (PDF) to prepare for this year’s ceremonies. Commencement is not only an exciting time for students but also for faculty as they have the privilege of joining in the celebration of their students’ achievements. This is the first time many of our graduates will be on campus and they look forward to meeting you at the various events that are held during the weekend across campus. Your participation in commencement is appreciated and does not go unnoticed.

Faculty Regalia

All faculty participating in the weekend events will be required to provide their own regalia. Regalia can be purchased online from the University regalia vendor, Oak Hall. We encourage you to purchase your regalia in advance and do not recommend that you wait until the week of Commencement, as there may be limited availability of the specific regalia colors or items that you need.
