Interested in being a Marshal?
Faculty members are invited to serve as marshals for their school on commencement day. Marshals perform a critical role assisting with student line-up and leading the academic procession at the university-wide convocation and at the school diploma ceremonies. To learn more about serving as marshal, contact your school's commencement coordinator.
All faculty participating in commencement activities must wear appropriate academic regalia. In addition, marshals wear a special sash denoting their rank and participation in the ceremony. The marshal sash should be worn underneath the hood, from left shoulder to right hip, across the body.
All Marshals must attend a walk-through with the University Marshal to learn the procession route. Stay-tuned for updates about the date, time, and location for the walk-through.
