Faculty Participation and Regalia Ordering

The invitation to the commencement ceremony, including the option to request rental of academic regalia was emailed in mid-February of 2020. If you have not received the email, please contact dental.academicaffairs@pacific.edu. Faculty who do not own their own cap, gown, and hood must request that the rental regalia in advance through the Office of Academic Affairs. Faculty regalia rentals must be ordered by April 29, 2020. The rentals will be distributed on campus at a date and time to be determined, and we'll order items based on your recorded RSVP. Please check back for updates.

If you are planning to sit with other faculty members wearing the cap & gown, you will be contacted by email regarding your role as a participating member of the faculty. The ceremony is expected to last a minimum of 2 hours.

All faculty and staff are invited to attend without the requirement to rent academic regalia if the preference is to sit in the general unreserved seats.
