Faculty and Volunteers
Volunteers are an important and indispensable part of what makes Commencement a successful and memorable event each year. We encourage those that have participated in the past to join us again. For newcomers, we invite you to be a part of the most exciting time of the year.
All Vanderbilt University faculty members are invited to attend Commencement activities. Any faculty attending should contact their school to order their complementary regalia (cap and gown).
You are invited to follow the live Commencement events online at the Vanderbilt homepage. All staff are also invited to attend THE PARTY on Wednesday night. Tickets for THE PARTY are $20 and can be purchased online.
