Wichita State University faculty are encouraged to attend each graduation ceremony and march in the processional to show support and encouragement to the graduates. Faculty who will march should arrive at least 45 minutes prior to the start of the ceremony.
Members of the faculty can park in lot 2 and should enter the parking lot on the 21st street side. There will be a police barricade here, so please let the officer know that you are faculty there to participate in commencement. Faculty are welcome to congregate in the Champion's Club until it is time to line up for the ceremony. Faculty typically line up in the Media Room, which is a downstairs room that may be accessed from the elevator (across from section 102) or the stairs, which are located across from section 118-119.
For faculty needing regalia to wear, the WSU Bookstore will order rental regalia or help you purchase your own set. The deadline to order regalia through the bookstore for the Fall 2016 ceremony is October 14 for purchase or October 28 to purchase. The deadline to order regalia through the bookstore for the Spring 2017 ceremony is typically in mid March, however faculty are encouraged to place their orders prior to this. Rush delivery charges may be applied to regalia orders that are placed after the deadline.
For other pricing or to order, please contact Julie Hejtmanek at 978-7021 or between 8:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m., Monday - Friday.
