Information for Faculty

All faculty are encouraged to participate in the Commencement ceremony, as they have played a significant role in the development and nurturing of the graduates crossing the stage.

 

RSVP

Faculty interested in participating in the processional must RSVP to s.bove@unf.edu, to ensure that there is enough seating to accommodate all faculty participants. Faculty are also invited to attend the President's Reception between the ceremonies. It will be held in the President's Conference Room (1/2800), 12-1:30 p.m. and RSVP's can be sent to s.bove@unf.edu.

The deadline for faculty to order regalia through the bookstore is Oct. 24, 2014. Regalia will be available for pickup in the bookstore starting Dec. 1, 2014. It must be returned to the bookstore within the week following graduation. For convenience, boxes will be placed in the faculty robing room in the Arena for the return of regalia after the ceremony. These boxes will be returned to the bookstore the week after Commencement.

Processional
