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 May 9th 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 CenturyLink Field. Faculty can pick up their regalia at the University Book Store, June 4 – June 8, during the store’s normal operating hours. For more information visit our Academic Apparel page.
Instructional Video for Faculty
If you watch this video please understand that the sections referring to the lineup of candidates and their procession into the field will be substantially different at CenturyLink Field. Your online instructions will explain how the lineup and procession will be done this year. The walk of the candidates to the stage to receive their diploma covers and mementos will still be done as it was in Husky Stadium – so that part of the video still applies.
