Instructions Quick Links
All faculty are invited to participate in the Commencement Ceremony. As official witnesses to the conferring of degrees they play a vital role in the success of the Ceremony. Many faculty members have served as Commencement and College Marshals for 20 years or more. Occasionally a position opens up in these elite ranks. Please contact us if you are interested in becoming a marshal.
Those who are not marshals may participate as members of the academic procession. Stage seating limits the size of the academic procession, so please confirm your Commencement participation via our online Ceremony RSVP/Regalia Order Form prior to midnight, May 10th to secure your seat. You can also use this form to order academic regalia, which is free for those who are participating in Commencement at Husky Stadium. Faculty can pick up their regalia at the University Book Store, June 1 – June 6, during the store’s normal operating hours. For more information visit our Academic Apparel page.
Instructional Video for Faculty
This video is being updated. The processional information will change substantially. The parts of the video showing the walk of the various candidates to the stage are still good representations of what actually happens in the ceremony and will only change slightly.
