Faculty Line-Up

Faculty members attending the commencement ceremony should arrive and be ready for the lineup at 11:30 a.m. Saturday, Dec. 11, which is one hour before the ceremony start time. The processional line up will take place on the east end of the ASUI-Kibbie Activity Center floor. The processional will proceed as a single file line around a curtain into the seating area for faculty. The processional will start at approximately noon, a half hour before the ceremony start time. Marshalls will be guiding you and able to answer any questions you may have.


After opening remarks, guest speakers, honorary degrees and recognition of honors, students will approach the stage to receive their diploma cover. Students will have the option to shake hands with their academic dean or president and will be able to have a socially distanced photograph. Doctoral candidates will have the option to be hooded by their major professor or arrive hooded. Masters candidates will need to arrive to the ceremony wearing their hoods. Faculty are welcome to congratulate their students as they feel comfortable after they receive their diploma cover. Faculty can also help by reminding students to wear masks and encouraging students to remain through the entire ceremony. The ceremony, not including processional, will last approximately two hours.
