Welcome UNCW Faculty & Staff! 

Commencement would not be possible without support from our Seahawk community! Please review the opportunities to assist with Commencement-related events and activities below.

Faculty Participation in Commencement

Each semester, faculty are encouraged to participate in UNCW's commencement exercises to show their support for students. Faculty who choose to attend should wear regalia as they will participate in the commencement processional. 

Please complete the faculty participation survey by April 5, 2023 to indicate your plans for attendance and help us plan seating arrangements accordingly.
