Dear Senior Lecturer Colleagues:

It is with great pleasure that we invite Senior Lecturers to participate in the Commencement Exercises of the Institute on Friday, June 5, 2015. Participation of those who play a primary teaching role is essential to the success of this event, which truly celebrates the significant accomplishments of our students.

Participation and regalia

Commencement 2015 is right around the corner, and we ask you to tell us of your plans to attend Commencement by completing the online form. This form may also be used to request rental regalia. If you are ordering regalia, please submit your form by 9 am on Friday, May 8. If you would like to request a ticket for a guest who may be accompanying you to Commencement, you may do so on this form, as well. These seats are in the reserved seating section in Killian Court. You will receive an email toward the end of May to let you know when and where to pick up your ticket.

Details about Commencement 2015 are still being finalized, so in the meantime, I refer you to the list of frequently asked questions for Senior Lecturers. If you have further questions or suggestions, please send them to

A final note: Commencement is a very special opportunity to honor our Institute students who have worked so hard to earn their MIT degrees. Please place Friday, June 5 from 8:30 am to 1:30 pm on your calendar now, and give serious thought to giving a small amount of time to being there and saying “great job” to our students. I look forward to working with you to make that happen.
