Faculty Participation

Faculty members are encouraged to participate in commencement ceremonies as this marks a milestone in the lives of our students, their families and friends. Faculty participation includes the opening procession, joining university officials on stage and celebrating with our graduates and their guests.

To participate in your school or college's commencement ceremony, contact your college coordinator.

Ceremony Information

See Ceremonies by College for commencement dates and times. Faculty should plan to be at the ceremony at least one hour before your ceremony start time. Parking is available at the venue, but regular parking costs may apply.

Faculty Academic Regalia

Faculty who do not own their own academic regalia may reserve gowns, caps and hoods through their college coordinator.

Cap and Gown Pickup & Return

Cap and gown pickups generally occur the week before commencement. The dates and locations for faculty cap and gown pickup and return are the same as for graduating students.
