    Faculty invited to share in graduates' special day

    Faculty members planning to participate in the academic processions during this fall’s convocation ceremonies have until Wednesday, Nov. 4 to reserve regalia.

    “Convocation is the moment when it all comes together – the hard work, dedication and rigorous study.  For our graduates, this is their moment to shine,” says Brent Cameron, Convocation and Communications Administrator, Office of the University Registrar. “Having those people who guided and facilitated this journey share in the celebration gives our ceremonies added significance.”

    Fall convocation includes five ceremonies held on Tuesday, Nov. 17 and Wednesday, Nov. 18. Faculty members who are Queen's graduates can confirm 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 online.

    Faculty members can pick up their regalia 30 minutes prior to each ceremony in Room 209, Kingston Hall. Those not requiring regalia can still confirm their attendance in the period leading up to the ceremonies after the Nov. 4 deadline for booking regalia.

    For more information about convocation, including the department and faculty breakdown for the four ceremonies, visit the University Registrar website.

    For more information, or if there is difficulty submitting the form, please contact Mr. Cameron by email or call ext. 74050.
