As an academic institution, the commencement ceremonies are one of the most important events of the year. It is an opportunity to recognize and celebrate the accomplishments of the people we serve, our students! Every year, we have over several hundred students graduate and several thousand friends and guests attend. These ceremonies would not be possible without the help of dozens of volunteers.

There are a number of ways that you can help out with the festivities. The volunteer opportunities that we have available are:

  • Greeters
  • Wayfinders
  • Program distributors
  • Student line up
  • Faculty line up
  • Information table staff
  • Gonfalon holders
  • Line marshals

Volunteer opportunities are limited to EWU faculty and staff. As Commencement Day approaches, you will receive an email with more information regarding your chosen assignment.

THANK YOU in advance for your help!
