It is a pleasure to invite CSU faculty to attend the Graduate School Commencement exercises!
We especially hope that faculty members with doctoral advisee graduates will attend since each student will be individually recognized on the platform. Additionally, we encourage all faculty to participate in the processional even if you do not have a student advisee graduating. The purpose of the ceremony is to honor and recognize the achievements of all our graduates. Moreover, it is an opportunity to reaffirm our intellectual values and to celebrate the role of scholarly traditions in our culture. In short, this is a great opportunity to participate in an all-campus event that honors our students, our faculty, and our University.
Faculty members planning to attend commencement are asked to assemble in the hallway leading to the east junction 45 minutes before the Graduate School Commencement ceremony begins. Signs will direct you to the proper location and marshals will give instructions regarding the formation of the processional. Please contact your college office regarding regalia orders or if you need further information. Those of you who have students receiving a Ph.D., please refer to our Hooding Instructions resource page for instructions.
CSU implemented enhanced security procedures at Moby Arena to provide a safer environment for the public. Please be aware of the Clear Bag Policy and that metal detection will be enforced in Moby Arena.
We look forward to joining you for this memorable event. Thank you for your commitment to graduate students and their continued success.
