Information for Faculty & Staff

The 2020, 2021 and 2022 convocation ceremonies will take place at Co-op Place at 10 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. on Friday, June 10, 2022.

Attending Convocation (Faculty members)
All faculty members who have confirmed their attendance for convocation are asked to meet in the southeast end of Co-op Place by 9:15 a.m. (2020 and 2021 ceremony) and 12:45 p.m. (2022 ceremony); pinning assistance will be available.

Faculty will line up for the grand march at 9:45 a.m. (2020 and 2021 ceremony) and 1:15 p.m. (2022 ceremony).

Faculty gowns will be available for pick-up on June 9, 2022 from 12 p.m. - 6 p.m. and June 10, 2022 from 8 a.m. - 10 a.m. in the shipping/receiving entrance at the southeast end of Co-op Place. Gowns must be returned to the bins that will be set up at Co-op Place by 5 p.m. on June 10, 2022.

All faculty gowns will be ordered directly through Gaspard. Although gown orders are processed exactly as received, the supplier often has to send substitutions based on availability. If you wish to purchase your own regalia to avoid the possibility of a substitution, this can also be done on the Gaspard website. All questions and concerns can be sent directly to Gaspard.

Dress Guidelines
The convocation gowns are warm, so consider the weather and wear appropriate clothing the day of your ceremony. The gowns typically reach below your knees so business dress and comfortable shoes are suggested.

Volunteer Opportunities
Volunteer opportunities include gown sorting, greeting, and ushering. If you are interested in volunteering, please contact Zoë at

Staff and faculty are invited to celebrate with students and their guests at the Alumni Tea immediately following the ceremonies.
