It’s that time of year—Winter Commencement is right around the corner! We know the challenges that the end of the year can bring to everyone and that Commencement ceremonies this December fall on the last two days the campus is open before winter break. Take extra consideration to help us so we can provide a quality send-off to our newest alumni.
The Graduate School ceremony is on Tuesday, December 21, and the Undergraduate ceremony is on Wednesday, December 22. Both ceremonies will be at 10 a.m. in the RAC. We are looking for volunteers for both days, 8 a.m. until the end of the ceremony, about noon.
Visit the volunteer registration website at my.umbc.edu/go/commencementvolunteer to see a brief description of the jobs available and the number of staff needed. Many of you like particular jobs, so sign up now before they are filled! You will receive a confirmation e-mail after you submit your selection(s).
Volunteer trainings for both ceremonies will take place on Monday, December 20, in the RAC. Undergraduate training will be at 1 p.m. and Graduate School training will be at 2 p.m.
