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. Unless you are a member of the platform party, faculty will robe 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 2015 ceremony is October 9 for purchase or October 23 to purchase. The deadline to order regalia through the bookstore for the Spring 2016 ceremony is March 11 to purchase or March 23rd to rent, 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.
