A huge thank you to the faculty and staff working during graduation weekend, our ceremonies would not be successful without your dedication and commitment!
- MARSHALS WORKING THE CEREMONIES
Faculty and staff working the ceremonies should arrive 2 hours before the ceremony, entering through Gate 4.
Proceed to the basement level in the Performer's Dressing Room where you will receive a marshal gown to wear over their business casual clothing. Comfortable shoes are recommended, as these roles require periods of standing and walking.
Spring '21 Marshal Job Instrux provides an outline of the duties marshals perform for the ceremonies. A training will be held an hour prior to doors opening for the ceremony to ensure you understand your marshal assignment.
The ceremony will run approximately 2 hours; there will not be a processional this semester. You will be needed through the duration of the ceremony. Afterwards, you will return your marshal robe to the Performer's Dressing Room.
Total time commitment: 4 hours, 15 minutes
