Information for Faculty and Marshals

Information for Faculty and Marshals



Note: Commencement will take place outdoors and on a grass surface: flat shoes are advised for comfort and mobility.

Honor students will be acknowledged at the individual school and divisions' ceremonies. 


The President and Provost request that each academic department be represented at graduation exercises by half of its full-time faculty.  It is important to ensure faculty attendance at this most important occasion for our students.  Academic regalia must be worn in the ceremony.

Each chair is requested to send the names of those in their department who will march. Those names will be compiled in an excel file to include First Name, Last Name, Department, E-mail address and phone extension.  Please send this to Dominic Stellini at  and Lydia Travis  


We also need volunteers from the faculty and staff to commit to being marshals. This is a very important job, and it is crucial for the smooth functioning of commencement activities. 

Marshals’ gowns will be supplied by the College to those who need them. 

Faculty who participate in commencement are required to pay for their own caps and gowns. However, the College will supply gowns for those who volunteer their services as marshals. Those wishing to wear individual hoods must order them for themselves.



If you have not already ordered regalia, Herff Jones will have open stock available to rent on a first-come, first-serve basis in the Nat Holman Gymnasium on the following dates and times:

Wednesday, May 25, 2022 from 12pm - 7pm

Tuesday, May 31, 2022 from 11am to 6pm

Wednesday, June 1, 2022 from 9am to 4pm

For those that have already ordered regalia, items can be picked up during the dates and times listed above.

CWE Faculty may pick up orders on dates listed above or Tuesday, May 24, 2022  from 4pm to 6pm in the CWE Auditorium, 25 Broadway.


Thank you for your cooperation. If you have any questions or need additional information, feel free to call Dominic Stellini at x6968.
