Faculty, Staff & Volunteers
Faculty play a vital role in our Commencement ceremonies, participating either as a member of the platform party or as a ceremony marshal. If you are interested in participating in the Spring 2024 ceremonies, you may register here. If you are hooding a doctoral candidate you do not RSVP; the graduate registers you and you will recieve an invitation confirmation email.
If you need to rent regalia you may do so here.
Marshals are what keep Commencement successful and an enjoyable and memorable experience for our students. Staff, faculty and administration may volunteer to serve as a ceremony marshal, who assist our graduates on the arena floor. If you are interested in participating, you may register here. As a part of the registration process you will provide your height, and will wear marshal regalia, provided by the Commencement office.
