Commencement Safety and Security Guidelines

Faculty and Staff:

We look forward to celebrating the MCLA class of 2018 at this year's Baccalaureate Ceremony on Friday, May 11 and our Commencement exercises on Saturday, May 12. As we move into this weekend of celebration, we have put additional guidelines in place to ensure that all those who gather for these celebrations enjoy the festivities as safely and securely as possible.

Please be aware of the following guidelines:

•    All campus community members participating in Commencement activities must have a valid form of government issued identification with them at all times. Valid IDs would include your campus ID, driver's license or other state ID, or passport. Faculty and staff who need to obtain or update your MCLA ID may do so at Campus Police Headquarters at 277 Ashland Street from 8 a.m.-4 p.m. Monday-Friday.

•    Please be advised that large bags and personal items are prohibited in any areas where Commencement activities are taking place. We recognize that faculty and staff participating in the Commencement procession may need to transport their academic regalia to their robing area for robing and line up; such necessary items are permitted.

Thank you in advance for your cooperation with these guidelines, and for being part of Commencement activities as we offer our congratulations to the MCLA Class of 2018. I look forward to joining you at the celebration on May 12.
