The 45th University of Massachusetts Boston Commencement will be held on Friday, May 31, 2013 on the front lawn of the Campus Center. For our graduates, faculty participation in the commencement celebrations will enhance the honor they feel in marking their achievement. Also, a large faculty presence is a public testimony to our university’s commitment to their success.
The academic procession is one of the oldest university traditions and it is widely viewed as a symbol of our collective dedication to the development of knowledge and academic inquiry. You are all invited to be a part of our academic procession.
We ask that you gather on the first floor of McCormack Hall by 8:30am for robing and line up. Light breakfast fare will be served.
Please email the Office of Special Events by May 24 if you plan to march: email@example.com or 617-287-5313
