Faculty members play a vital role in the intellectual and professional formation of ISU students. Our graduates appreciate our faculty’s presence as we bear witness to this milestone in their lives. Commencement is an opportunity to celebrate our students, but it is also a time to recognize our faculty’s achievement in shepherding another class of students through their time at ISU.

Faculty RSVP Required

We would appreciate an RSVP from any faculty members who plan to attend.


  • If you are participating in the ceremony as a faculty member, please arrive at least half an hour early. Please enter on the south side of the building and come down to the southwest corner of the turf. We will have signage to direct you and volunteers to assist you. Bring or wear your regalia!
  • If you are serving as a hooder for doctoral grads, please look for the orange Graduate School banner and find your advisee/s. You will walk with them in the procession and sit next to them during the ceremony.
  • If you ordered regalia, please make sure to pick it up at the ISU Bookstore before Saturday. You will return your rentals the week following commencement.


Deadline to buy commencement regalia: TBA

The university will cover the cost of your rentals.
