Faculty invited to confirm convocation participation

Faculty invited to confirm convocation participation

April 29, 2013


Queen's faculty members have until Monday, May 6 to reserve regalia to participate in the academic procession during spring convocation ceremonies.

“The ceremonies are meaningful moments where graduates, their mentors, and their families and friends come together in a celebration of achievement. Faculty members have guided them throughout their time at Queen’s and it is only fitting for them to be there at that important moment,” says Brent Cameron, Convocation and Communications Administrator.

Spring convocation includes 21 ceremonies, to be held between May 23 and June 14, with master’s and doctoral graduates participating alongside their undergraduate counterparts.

Faculty members who are Queen's graduates can RSVP their participation in one or more of the academic processions and reserve regalia by filling out an online form. Members of the academic procession who are not Queen’s graduates must make their own arrangements for hoods; however, they may reserve a black gown and confirm their participation using the online form.

Faculty members not requiring regalia can still confirm their attendance in the period leading up to the ceremonies after the May 6 deadline for booking regalia.

The full convocation schedule, including the department and faculty breakdown, is posted on the University Registrar website. Faculty members can pick up their regalia 30 minutes before each ceremony in Room 209, Kingston Hall.

If there is difficulty submitting the form, please contact Mr. Cameron by email or call ext. 74050.
