Participation in Commencement


Commencement ceremonies are held at the end of Fall and Spring semesters.

Department/School chairpersons and major professors or faculty advisors who have students who are advanced degree candidates are requested to participate in the graduate commencement ceremony.

Three hundred members of the faculty are expected to participate in the baccalaureate degree ceremonies. The Commencement Committee, using the distribution of Academic Senate members as a guide, prepares and distributes college, department and school quotas to meet the required number. Deans, chairpersons, and directors are responsible for meeting these quotas. Each college establishes its own expectations for faculty participation in the decentralized baccalaureate ceremonies at the end of Spring semester.
