Faculty, Staff, + Volunteers


Trustees who wish to reserve a ticket or participate in the platform party should contact Janice Obman or the Commencement Office.

Commencement is a day that touches every segment of our campus community. Faculty march with the academic procession, our marshals lead the way, our trustees join the platform party, and volunteers make sure that everything comes together to make the celebration memorable. 

While positions vary, we especially need help with guest services, which include ushering, translation, campus information, disability services, and generally ensuring that our graduates and their families enjoy these special days. Volunteers will receive a polo and lunch.
