Faculty Commencement RSVP, Cap and Gown Request

Feb. 14, 2014

The time has come to order academic caps and gowns in anticipation of Commencement 2014. All full-time faculty, lecturers, senior lecturers and visiting artists are expected to participate in the graduation ceremonies of their departments. Part-time faculty members are strongly encouraged to attend and share in the achievements of the graduates. You must RSVP if you plan to attend; otherwise, a seat will not be reserved for you.

The Office of Academic Affairs will provide rented caps and gowns for faculty members who request them. Whether or not you plan on attending or need a cap and gown, please visit the Cap and Gown form, log in, and fill in any missing or out-of-date information by Friday, March 7. There is also a link to the faculty robe order form on the faculty page in OASIS.
