Marshal Volunteers

Our commencement is an important event for our campus and it would be an honor to have our faculty members volunteer to be a marshal at the ceremony.  Being a marshal will give you the opportunity to share in the great achievement of the graduating students.  The job of the marshal is to lead each line of graduating students into the auditorium, and then onto the stage where their name will be read and they will receive their diploma.

If you are interested in being a marshal, please fill out the form above and choose which event you would like to marshal. Leave the marshal option blank if you do not want to be a marshal. Faculty who are not marshals will march in the faculty procession. 

There will be a mandatory meeting for marshals: date, time, and location TBD.
