Attendance at College Functions

During the year there are several events at which faculty attendance is expected. These include the Opening Faculty Convocation, all-faculty conferences, baccalaureate and commencement exercises in the spring, and faculty meetings. Commencement requires full academic regalia for all faculty with full-time appointments.

Attendance at other college events, such as Convocations, worship services, recitals, dramatic and musical performances, and athletic contests, is strongly encouraged. It is recognized that campus life is too rich for anyone to be able to attend all that is scheduled; individual taste inevitably enters into one’s choices regarding such attendance.
