Calling all staff: Volunteers needed for Commencement Ceremony 2017

Call for Volunteers – faculty, staff, and administrators who are not planning to walk at the 2017 Commencement Ceremony

This is an exciting time of year for our students. It takes the efforts of many to put on Commencement, so I am putting out a call for volunteers to serve as ushers as well as others to help set up before and/or clean up after the reception that follows the ceremony on Sun., June 11. Ushers are also asked to attend the beginning of the rehearsal on Fri., June 9 at 1:30 p.m. to listen to a short talk by Edwin Lucero, Acting Supervisor of Safety and Security. The time commitment on Sunday would be approximately 3-4 hours. Classified staff can earn overtime pay or work with their supervisors to flex the time later in the week.

Show your continued support for students by helping them celebrate this special day in their lives. If you are planning to volunteer, please email Nancy Marshall directly at with “Call for Volunteers” in the subject line and what you would like to do to help out. Those who volunteer will hear back from me soon with more details about Commencement Day itself. If you have questions, please feel free to call me at (206) 546-4641.

Many thanks,
Nancy Marshall
Dean of Students Office
