During Commencement, we open our doors to parents, guests, and many visitors, often for the first time.
To ensure that our 2010 graduating class and their families enjoy the best possible Commencement Day experience, we need the support of the UMass Boston community.
Because the focus on campus that day will be Commencement, all employees are expected to staff the commencement ceremony.
Essential business offices will be open and minimally staffed. Other offices should develop a rotating schedule to permit staff to participate in and assist with Commencement activities.
Each staff member is asked to report to check-in at 7am. A continental breakfast will be served. At check-in you will receive a name tag and FAQ sheet outlining the day. This sheet will also be distributed at the rehearsal which takes place a few days prior. Lunch will be provided for all commencement staff as well.
