Academic Convocation 2014 will take place on Friday, August 22, in the SERC House of Fields.
Please use this form to sign up so we can get a head count and reserve seats for all processing faculty.
The last day to sign up is Wednesday, August 20, at 5 pm.
Processing faculty must wear academic regalia. If you do not have regalia, you may purchase it through the Barnes & Noble College Bookstore. The deadline to order regalia from the Bookstore is July 18.
Faculty robing will take place in the SERC Group Exercise Room at 3:30 pm. Line-up begins at 3:45 pm, and the procession will start promptly at 4 pm. The ceremony will last approximately one hour. At the conclusion of the ceremony, the platform party and faculty will recess and take positions along the perimeter of the Main Lobby, up the stairs, on the second floor balcony, etc., leaving an aisle leading to the building exit. Then, the students will exit the building through the aisle while everyone cheers and applauds. There will be no reception following Academic Convocation.
Strong participation by our faculty in the academic procession reinforces our commitment to student success. We greatly appreciate your support of Academic Convocation.
