Line-up and Procession Instructions

Faculty should arrive at the Jenny Craig Pavilion at least one hour before the ceremony start time. Faculty robing takes place in the Faculty Green Room (Fitness Center) on the ground floor of the Jenny Craig Pavilion. Bins will also be placed inside the Faculty Green Room for returning regalia after the ceremony.

The Faculty Marshal will assist faculty in lining up and leads the faculty in the processional. There is no assigned seating for faculty on the platform, but faculty should stay in their rows as they fill the available seats.

Special Accommodations

Faculty who need special accommodation, such as wheelchair or assisted access, or have unanticipated needs that arise during the week before Commencement, should contact the head marshal Mariann Sanchez (for the Graduate Schools ceremony) or Marie Minnick (undergraduate ceremonies head marshal). This information will be shared with the appropriate platform marshal.

Vehicles displaying a DMV-issued disabled person parking tag or sticker will be directed to designated spaces on the third floor of the Mission Parking Structure, which is directly across from the Jenny Craig Pavilion. Tram Service is provided for all disabled and elderly guests from the third floor entrance of the Mission Parking Structure.
