Faculty

Baylor faculty are encouraged to attend commencement ceremonies and march in the procession to show support and encouragement to the degree candidates.

  • Faculty must RSVP their plans for attendance two weeks before commencement so that adequate seating can be reserved in the ceremony.
  • Faculty should plan to arrive at McLane Stadium one hour before the ceremony in order to park in reserved faculty spots in Lot 2. Parking is on a first-come/first-served basis.
  • Faculty will use the stadium staff entrance right next to the ticket office located near parking Lot 2. See map here.
  • Faculty robing will take place in Visitors’ Locker Rooms 1 & 2 inside McLane Stadium. Marshals will line up faculty for the procession.

Faculty at the ceremony are encouraged to greet the degree candidates in their discipline after the students have walked across the stage and photos have been taken. Faculty will form a line facing the students seated on the field, allowing them to greet students as they walk back to their seats. Due to COVID-19 safety precautions, please no hugging or handshakes.
