Faculty play special role in convocation

Faculty members can be a part of their graduating students’ big day by participating in the academic procession during spring convocation ceremonies.

Faculty members can participate in the academic procession during convocation ceremonies.

“Our students have dedicated a great deal of energy and effort during their academic career at Queen’s building to this important moment,” Principal Daniel Woolf says. “To share convocation with those faculty members who nurtured and mentored them during this journey of discovery and achievement makes the celebration all the more meaningful.”

Spring convocation includes 21 ceremonies held from May 21 to June 11. Faculty members have until May 8 to reserve regalia to participate in the academic processions during the convocation ceremonies.

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 May 8 deadline for booking regalia.

For more information about convocation, including the department and faculty breakdown for the 21 ceremonies, visit the University Registrar website.

For more information, or if there is difficulty submitting the form, please contact Brent Cameron, Convocation and Communications Administrator, Office of the University Registrar, by email or call ext. 74050.
