Information for CEHD Faculty

While the University Commencement signifies the official conferral of degrees, our Convocation Ceremony is an opportunity for the college to recognize its graduates by name and celebrate its students’ achievements.

Registration

Faculty are an important part of this celebration, and we strongly encourage you to participate in our faculty processional. The registration deadline for faculty has passed; if you have questions about participating, please e-mail cehdconvocation@gsu.edu with “Spring Convocation Faculty RSVP” in the subject line.

Regalia

Faculty participating in Convocation are required to wear regalia. Faculty members can order regalia by visiting www.colleges.herffjones.com/college/georgiastate/faculty/.

On the day of the ceremony, please come dressed in your regalia and as a reminder, please do not bring extra items with you. Note: The College of Education & Human Development is not responsible for any valuables left unattended in the designated holding room or ceremony room.

Arrival and Check-In

Faculty (including the platform party) must check-in at the Sports Arena by 10 a.m. at the latest. Important instructions about the ceremony will be given to faculty in the holding room and we will then begin lining up for the processional.

We kindly ask that all faculty participating in Convocation please leave their valuables with guests or prepare to take valuables with them during the procession. Our faculty holding room this semester will not be held in a room/space that can be secured. Note: The College of Education & Human Development is not responsible for any valuables left unattended in the designated holding room or ceremony room.

Ceremony

If you arrive after the ceremony has begun, please see an usher stationed at the doors of the ceremony room for seating.

We anticipate the ceremony will last approximately an hour and a half.
