All faculty are welcome to attend the commencement ceremonies. Currently, no RSVP or ticket is needed to attend the commencement ceremonies.
We ask that all faculty remain until the ceremony is over. We are unsure of the length of each ceremony but estimate 60-90 mins.
In order to comply with all state and local guidelines, all faculty will be required to remain in their seats. Social distancing guidelines must be observed.
Faculty who participate in the commencement ceremony need to wear their full academic regalia. If you do not own regalia, you may rent/purchase attire from the Nevada Wolf Shop.
You will need to meet your student inside the Lawlor Events Center Ticketing Office entrance off of 15th Street. If you are hooding multiple students, you will all need to get together before going to your seat. You will accompany your student(s) to the stage where you will hood them.
Approved face covering will be required at all times for graduates and guests in attendance while inside Lawlor Events Center. In addition we recommend all students and guests:
Wash hands frequently
Avoid touching your face
Remain in assigned seats for the duration of the event
Restrooms throughout the facility will be open and available. Limited capacity, mask requirements, and social distancing will be enforced in these areas
Parking will be available in the West Stadium Parking Garage on floors 3-6. ADA parking will be available on the 1st & 2nd floors. The Brian J. Whalen Parking Complex will also be open for free parking. No passes are needed to park in the garage the day of the ceremony.
All faculty will enter the Lawlor Events Center via the Ticket Office entrance off 15th Street. Those who enter on the upper concourse will need to take the stairs (located at Section 4) or elevator down to the lower concourse. If you are there to hood a doctoral student, you can meet your student on the lower concourse as well.
