Faculty

Commencement will be held on Sunday, June 5, 2022 on the Campus Green. For our graduates, faculty participation in the Commencement celebrations enhances this recognition of their accomplishments. A large faculty presence is also a public testimony to our University’s commitment to their success.

Academic Procession

The academic procession is one of the oldest university traditions and is widely viewed as a symbol of our collective dedication to the development of knowledge and academic inquiry. Faculty are invited to be a part of the academic procession; academic regalia is required.

Robing and formation of the line of march are scheduled for 11:15 a.m. in the Albert Sherman Center first-floor multi purpose room. Commencement staff will help you with your regalia and direct you to your place in the processional. The academic procession will begin promptly at 11:45 a.m.

To participate, please email timothy.rice@umassmed.edu so that reserved seating on the stage can be arranged. .
