Faculty Reminder

Dear Colleagues,

On Friday, May 27th, Baruch College will celebrate its 2016 Commencement Exercises at Barclays Center, located at 620 Atlantic Avenue in Brooklyn, NY.  We invite you to participate in the academic procession as we honor our Baruch graduates and their accomplishments on this memorable occasion.  Your role in our graduates successfully completing their course of study has been integral, therefore 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 4:00 pm.  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.  The ceremony involves over ten thousand graduates and guests; your presence and assistance on this day is critical.  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 submit it to the Office of Student Life no later than Thursday, April 21st 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 Thursday, April 21st 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 Thursday, April 21st will be fitted with whatever gowns are available on the day of Commencement at the Barclays Center.

Academic Regalia Pick-Up. You may pick up your academic regalia in the Newman Vertical Campus Multipurpose Room (NVC 1-107) on the following dates:

Garments not picked up by Tuesday, May 24th will be available in the faculty robing area at Barclays Center on May 27th.

All garments must be returned at the conclusion of the ceremony at Barclays Center.  Please do not return academic regalia back at the College.
