Faculty Participation


Be a Part of the Celebration!

UCR's ladder-rank faculty, adjunct professors, visiting faculty, lecturers, supervisors of teacher education, librarians, and academics all play a critical role in the education and growth of our students and contribute to their success both inside and outside the classroom.

Your participation at Commencement is very meaningful to your students, and we encourage you to attend and join them and their families in celebrating this important milestone. If you have a Ph.D. or M.F.A. candidate who is graduating this year, it is especially important that you attend to hood them.

Ph.D. and M.F.A. hooding for students in all colleges will take place at the Graduate Division Hooding ceremony on Saturday, May 30, 2020 at 9:00 a.m. at the Student Recreation Center North, main gymnasium.

If you are not hooding a Ph.D. or M.F.A. student this year, we encourage you to attend your college/school ceremony. Please refer to the Commencement schedule for the complete list of ceremony dates, times and locations.

If you would like to participate in Commencement, the registration form will be posted here in Winter Quarter.
