Faculty and staff participation

Faculty and staff are welcome to participate in the university procession during our convocation ceremonies. The procession sits on stage. 

Faculty and staff who wish to attend convocation ceremonies as a part of the procession should submit the Faculty and Staff RSVP Form. We can not guarantee space in the procession if your request is received less than one week before the ceremony. 

Please arrive at least 20 minutes prior to the start of a session.

If your plans change and you can no longer attend, please advise us by emailing marcomm@mun.ca


Faculty and staff are required to wear appropriate academic dress. Faculty and staff who do not own academic dress will be provided with a black gown and university hood to wear on the day of convocation. This will be available in the green room of the Arts and Culture Centre. You may access this space through either the loading bay door (facing Paton College) or through the side entrance (facing the MUN Child Care Centre). Head up the stairs and a convocation staff member will be able to assist you. 

Gowns and hoods may be returned following the convocation session.

Volunteer Opportunities 

The Convocation team are always looking for volunteers to help the day run smoothly. The time commitment for each session is about an hour and a half. To express interest in volunteering please fill out the Convocation volunteer form.
