General Information

Faculty Member at Podium

Thanks to all faculty members who plan to attend one (or more!) of the Commencement ceremonies. It is a very special time for our students, and your presence means a great deal to them and to the University.

Date: Friday, December 16th



Hooding Faculty

If you are planning to hood one or more students during the Graduate and Professional commencement ceremony, please register here. (Link coming soon!)

For more information on how to hood your student, please watch a demonstration video by Jeannine Blackwell.


All Faculty

If you are planning to attend one or more of the commencement ceremonies in which you are not hooding, please register here. (Link coming soon!)

Academic Apparel

All faculty members are required to wear regalia to the ceremony. If you do not own regalia, the University will provide a one-time contribution toward the cost of regalia. Please email Drew Crawford to order yours today! *Orders must be placed prior to October 14, 2016.

Here is what we will provide:

- The university will provide a black doctoral robe, mortarboard/tassle, and appropriate hood on a one-time basis. This robe is not intended for long term use, but will certainly stand up to mulitple uses if handled with care.

All regalia will be ordered from the UK Bookstore.
