Staff Information

Faculty who are not reading graduate names are welcome to attend the Convocation Ceremonies to support and congratulate their students. Please order your Academic Regalia (Hood) if you do not have your own (see ordering instructions in Faculty Regalia and Academic Hoods).

  • Faculty should arrive at least 30 minutes prior to the ceremony and proceed to the Faculty Gowning room in the Student Centre, Room 2 on the second floor.

  • Faculty will be able to pick up a gown that will be worn during the ceremony. Please wear light clothing as it does get warm when wearing a gown.

  • There is no secure storage for items this year so please do not bring valuables with you to be stored. There will be a volunteer in that area at all times, but it is not secure.

  • 20 minutes before the start of the ceremony the Dais Party Marshall will line up the entire group of faculty who are participating in Convocation by the faculty gowning room in the Student Centre. Faculty members are asked to be prompt and follow the instructions of the Dais Party Marshall.

  • The faculty will follow the Dais Party and be seated in the first couple of rows of the graduate seating area on the right side of the stage.

  • Faculty may form a line at the bottom of the stage ramp, after the Alumni Association, to congratulate their former students. Please keep the flow of graduates moving as they need to return to their seats.

  • Following the ceremony faculty will process out of the Athletic and Wellness Centre (AWC) following the graduates.

  • Faculty are asked to promptly return their gown to the Faculty Gowning Room, Room 2 in the Student Centre. You are welcome to join the reception in the Main Events Hall in the Student Centre.
