Information for Faculty

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.


Faculty interested in participating in the processional must RSVP to to ensure that there is enough seating to accommodate all faculty participants. 


The deadline for faculty to order regalia through the UNF Bookstore is March 20, 2020. Regalia will be available for pickup in the bookstore April 27 - April 30. Your items must be returned to the UNF 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.


To order regalia, simply e-mail the UNF Bookstore with the following information:

  • Name

  • Weight
  • Cap size (if you don't know, measure in inches and they can convert)
  • Cap preference: mortarboard or tam
  • Highest degree
  • Institution of highest degree
  • Discipline of highest degree


Faculty should assemble for the processional in the Faculty Robing Room 30 minutes before the ceremony begins. To avoid the crowds at the main entrance of the Arena, please use the designated faculty entrance at the southeast corner of the building (directly across from the parking garage).
