Commencement is a special time for our graduates and guests. The participation of members of the faculty emphasizes the value and importance of the guidance, leadership, and support given to our students.
Ways to Participate
Faculty may participate in the commencement ceremonies in the following ways.
These faculty members are invited by the deans to be part of the undergraduate processional. They lead each school's candidates to their seats and remain with them throughout the ceremony.
Participate in the Academic Procession and are seated either with the candidates on the arena floor (undergraduate) or on the stage (all others) during the graduation.
Academic Procession for Faculty
The academic procession, consisting of candidates and participating faculty will assemble in the South Lexis Lobby of the BB&T Center when the doors open, one hour before the ceremony begins and will be led into the arena by the grand marshal.
