Faculty members invited to participate in Winter Commencement ceremonies

I invite members of the faculty to participate in UND’s Winter Commencement ceremonies on Friday, December 17th. Two ceremonies will be held and faculty members are encouraged to march in academic regalia in one or both events.

The ceremony for all professional and graduate degrees will begin at 10:00 a.m. and all undergraduate degrees will be awarded at the ceremony beginning at 2:00 p.m. Both events will be held in the Chester Fritz Auditorium. Faculty members should assemble outside the auditorium Door A and be ready to process at least 30 minutes prior to the ceremony. University marshals will be on hand to direct participants to their places in the procession.

Please contact the Office of Ceremonies and Special Events in the Vice President for Student Affairs Office at 777-2724 by Wednesday, December 15th, or send an e-mail message to Jan Flatin at if you plan to participate so that the appropriate number of seats can be reserved on the stage. When responding, please make sure to indicate if you will be participating in one or both ceremonies.

-- Robert O. Kelley, President.
