Inauguration Volunteer Staff

The following information is for Inauguration Staff who have volunteered to assist with the Inauguration ceremony.  If you are interested in serving as Inauguration Staff for the ceremony please email inauguration@wichita.edu as soon as possible.  We appreciate your willingness to help out with this very special event!


Members of the Inauguration Staff are the face of Wichita State University. Many of the individuals attending this event have never been to WSU before and may have traveled many miles to get here, so inauguration volunteers are their welcome to the university.


We do ask that all Inauguration Staff attend a short 30 minute training prior to the event.  We have two training sessions available, both will take place in the Metropolitan Complex, room 185 (please enter through door "J").  The first training is on Tuesday, October 9th from 4:00-4:30 pm and the second is on Wednesday, October 10th from 9:00-9:30 am.  If you cannot attend either of these times please email inauguration@wichita.edu prior to October 1st to set up an individual training session.

Where to Go and What to Wear

Inauguration Staff team members are encouraged to park on the south side of the Eugene Hughes Metropolitan Complex. You will enter the building through door "J" and check-in to room 185.  Staff members should wear black slacks or skirts, comfortable black shoes and a white button shirt.
