Faculty, Staff & Administrators

General Information


Commencement marks an important milestone in the lives of our students. All members of the campus community are invited to celebrate with the graduates and their families.

The presence of the faculty has always been a notable tradition at commencement ceremonies. The centuries-old ritual of the faculty procession in academic attire led by the senior member carrying the University mace convey the continuity of academic tradition from the past to the present.
