All faculty are encouraged to participate in the Commencement exercises.


Faculty members are requested to march in the Commencement procession in academic regalia. 

The College will pay the regalia rental fees for all untenured members of the faculty. A regalia order form must be submitted to the College Store by Friday, April 21. You are responsible for picking up your regalia at the College Store beginning Wednesday, May 24, through Friday, May 26, as well as Saturday May 27 (9:00am - 4:00pm).

Tenured faculty are expected to assume rental costs themselves or purchase academic robes. The College offers a loan program for the purchase of academic regalia. Details can be found on the academic regalia order form. Please contact the College Store (802-443-2673) for further instructions.
