Faculty, with their diversely colored and patterned regalia signifying their alma maters, are a strong presence at Commencement; and all faculty are encouraged to participate in the annual exercises. Faculty sit in specially reserved seating behind the degree candidates on the main floor of the venue.
Faculty need to indicate to their departments whether they will be participating in Commencement.
Faculty Who Own Their Own Regalia
Let your school’s administrative representative know that you will be participating but do not need to rent a cap and gown. Your Dean has probably already appointed someone in his/her office and can make you aware of who that is.
Faculty Who DO NOT Own Regalia and Require a Rental
Visit the dedicated faculty Herff Jones website to place your rental order by March 11, 2019. Herff Jones recommends using Google Chrome with their system. IU Southeast covers the expense of rental regalia; but individual faculty must place their order via that site, in order to have something appropriate to wear at Commencement.
Faculty will need to provide the following information to regalia orders:
- Approximate Weight Range
- Name of school where you recieved your highest/most recent degree
- Highest/most recent degree obtained
After completing the order, faculty receive a confirming e-mail. Please forward that to your school’s administrative representative.
All timely rental orders are scheduled to be available for pick-up the week of April 29th at your school’s main office.
