Re: Spring 2011 Commencement Ceremony Participation
As you know, for the first time in recent City Colleges of Chicago history, all seven City Colleges will come together to honor our Associate degree completers at a district-wide spring commencement ceremony.
The ceremony will take place on:
Wednesday, May 11, 2011 at 6:00 p.m.
University of Illinois at Chicago Pavilion
525 S. Racine Ave., Chicago, IL
(Overflow accommodations at the UIC Forum, 725 West Roosevelt Road)
All full-time faculty are required to attend the commencement ceremony. This is a ticketed event, and graduation regalia is required for all ceremony participants. You must confirm attendance and place your order for graduation regalia with your College Registrar. Please confirm your participation and order your graduation regalia no later than Friday, March 11, 2011.
If you have a final exam scheduled for Wednesday evening, and you have students participating in commencement, please reschedule the final exam to allow students who are graduating to participate in the ceremony.
If you have a final exam scheduled for Wednesday evening, and do not have students participating in commencement, you are excused from commencement so the exam can be given as originally scheduled.
All other full-time faculty are required to attend commencement.
We appreciate your commitment to our students and your willingness to share in this special celebration of our graduates. If you have any questions regarding commencement ceremony participation, please email Dr. Vernese Edghill-Walden at email@example.com.
