Academic Procession

The academic procession is led by the Grand Marshal, a faculty member appointed by the President. A traditional order of procession is followed: First come the candidates for degrees according to the order in which the degrees are to be conferred; next, members of the faculty led by the Faculty Marshal; and finally the honorary degree recipients and other members of the platform party, followed by the President of the University. The order is reversed for the recessional.
