Fall congregation is just around the corner — November 22-24, 2017 (see here for the complete schedule).
You are invited to participate as a volunteer at one of the upcoming graduation ceremonies at the Vancouver and Okanagan campuses. This is a unique opportunity to get involved in this special occasion honouring our students’ achievements. By volunteering, you can be part of making it a memorable occasion for the students, their family and friends.
This fall, UBC’s online Graduation Volunteer Registration system has been expanded to include all of our volunteer roles: Macebearer, Faculty Marshal, Student Marshal and Student Usher.
In the past, volunteers have communicated interest to participate in different ways: directly to University Marshal, Professor Nancy Hermiston, to Senior Student Marshal, Professor Iain Taylor, to Ceremonies and perhaps through the main graduation reservation system. However, with the growth of ceremonies as well as volunteer functions, we kindly request that all volunteers please register on the graduation volunteer sign up page. Here you will find very detailed instructions for each of the four key roles needed for graduation to succeed.
Training is provided.
We will do our best to accommodate all requests but please understand that no role is confirmed until a volunteer has received an official confirmation from the Ceremonies Office via email.
