UNCW employees are needed to help with the Commencement ceremonies. Employees can choose to work one or multiple ceremonies. Duties may include passing out programs, traffic control, directing guests to seats, etc. Employees play a very important role and help leave a lasting and positive impression on our graduates and their families.
