Volunteer for Convocation
The College of Education & Human Development is looking for volunteers to help with the college’s Spring Convocation Ceremony.
Those who volunteer will receive comp time for their shift.
If you’re interested in volunteering, please review the information below and fill out the volunteer form.
On the day of the ceremony, please report to the designated student holding room for the College of Education & Human Development to sign-in, pick up your volunteer nametag and grab breakfast/snack items provided (the specific rooms designated for the ceremony, student holding and faculty holding will be posted at a later date).
We are asking all volunteers to wear black and white for the ceremony. For males, you may wear full black suits or pants only with white long-sleeve shirts, with a tie (preferably a tie with black, blue or silver). For females, you may wear full black dresses, skirt or pants suits, or just skirts/pants only with a white shirt.
- Student registration. At student registration, volunteers check students in, give them a colored card with their graduation information on it and direct students to the holding room.
- Faculty and platform party registration. At faculty/platform party registration, volunteers check faculty and platform party members in and direct them into their holding room.
- Greeters/programs. Greeters will be stationed at the entrances to the Sidney Marcus Auditorium to hand out programs and answer general questions about the ceremony.
- Processional. Volunteers helping with the processional will ensure students stay in their designated lines as they process from the holding room to the ceremony room.
- Holding room/ushers. Ushers will be assigned to each department and will be stationed in the student holding room. They will be in charge of guiding their designed group of students into the ceremony room and onto the stage, where all students will be seated. They will also guide students to the front of the stage and back to their seats during the graduate recognition section of the ceremony.
Volunteer assignments will be made as we get closer to the ceremony date.
