Faculty Reminder

Dear Colleagues,

On Wednesday, June 3, Baruch College will celebrate its 2015 Commencement Exercises at Barclays Center at 620 Atlantic Avenue in Brooklyn. Please join your colleagues in an academic procession as we honor our Baruch graduates and their accomplishments on this very auspicious occasion. Your role in the success of our graduates has been integral. It is only fitting that you participate and bear witness to the joy and pride of the parents, family and friends of our graduates. Commencement Exercises will begin promptly at 10am. The ceremony will consist of both undergraduate and graduate students.

We also invite interested faculty and staff to participate as Graduation Marshals at the commencement exercises. Your presence and assistance on this day is critical. The ceremony involves over ten thousand graduates and guests. We need your help with guest and degree candidate seating, crowd control, as well as the robing of faculty and students.

To confirm your attendance at commencement, to volunteer as a marshal and/or to order your academic regalia, please complete this form and return it to the Office of Student Life no later than Monday, April 20th by 5:00pm.  Commencement faculty regalia is available at no cost to members of the faculty and staff.  However, it is important that you place your order no later than Monday, April 20th by 5:00pm. Unfortunately, we will be unable to take any orders after this date.  Faculty and/or staff who request academic regalia after the order deadline date of Monday, April 20th will be fitted with whatever gowns are available on the day of Commencement at Barclays Center.
