Faculty and Staff Information

All faculty and staff are invited to participate in this year’s commencement ceremony.  This is a momentous day for many of our students and their families, and we hope that you will show your support and help to celebrate their accomplishments.  Each year we attract more and more students to the ceremony, and last year we saw nearly 550 students cross the stage.   Your presence plays a strong role in the success of the day and influences what our students will remember for years to come.  Details regarding your role in the event can be found below.
