Important information for VIPs, faculty, and staff gowning

All ceremonies will be held at Willingdon Church, 4812 Willingdon Ave.

*PARKING INFO*: Due to limited parking available at the venue, please park at IZUNA and walk up to Willingdon Church. Parking is FREE in IZUNA lots M, N, and O [PDF] on the day of Convocation.

Please arrive about 30-45 minutes prior to the ceremony to allow time for gowning. The Platform/Faculty gowning room is located on the lower floor.

Faculty will be marshalled into the ceremony and seated on the stage. The ceremony takes approximately 2 hours.

*Please note, in the spirit of continuous improvement and based on survey feedback received from the community, we are making a change in the ceremony format when it comes to the verbal acknowledgement of each Dean, Associate Dean, and Program Head or Chief Instructor from each of the programs. Individual names will no longer be read aloud by the emcee, however, we will now include names and titles in the official program, as well as on-screen both in the venue and for those viewers watching via live-stream.

Given this optimization, we encourage you to listen for your program to be read aloud as students cross the stage, as you are still welcome to join the Platform Party in shaking hands with your relevant graduating students.

After the ceremony the Platform Party will exit, followed by the faculty and then the graduates. Please return immediately to the gowning room to return your gown and degree hood.

There is a reception across from the Convocation hall following each ceremony.
