Join us in honoring our graduating students and future alumni!
There are a number of opportunities for faculty and staff to take part in making Commencement both a positive and personal experience for our graduating students. As the faculty and staff who guided our students through their time at UAlbany, your presence at these events honors their achievements and is rewarding for you as well.
As a vital member of our UAlbany community, you have worked hard all year to help our students realize success, and we invite you to share in their celebration! All faculty are invited to participate in regalia in the various academic ceremonies, and staff members are encouraged to volunteer for a myriad of critical positions.
Please be aware that commencement ceremonies often require participants to stand for long periods or use stairs. Accommodations are available to allow our entire UAlbany community to participate, so please email to let us know if you need special arrangements.
First, please review the schedule of ceremonies to determine what you can attend.
