Dear Senior Lecturer Colleagues:

I’d like to extend many thanks to those who participated in the Commencement 2016 festivities. 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.

Details about this year’s Commencement season are populating these pages. Please note that as of May 24, 5 pm: Online regalia ordering / registration is closed. If you wish to participate in Hooding or Commencement, please contact Kimberly Nelson directly to see whether arrangements can be made. If you own your own regalia and need simply to register to march, kindly include that information in your message. In the meantime, I refer you to the list of frequently asked questions for Senior Lecturers. If you find anything not covered in these pages, please send a note to the Commencement office at

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 9 from 8:45 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.

Paul A. Lagace
