Dear Senior Lecturer Colleagues:

We are in final preparation for our celebration at the end of the week. Emails have gone out to all Senior Lecturers participating in Commencement with details concerning assembly and other items. If you registered to participate and have not received such an email, please contact me. If you did not register to participate and wish to, registration has closed, but it may be possible to still include you—please contact Kimberly Nelson directly.
 
Two specific notes in preparation for Commencement. One is in our recognition of "Faculty Parents". Each year, some of our colleagues have a son, daughter, other relative, or significant other who is graduating. In such circumstances, we do our best to seat these colleagues so that they will have the opportunity to greet their close ones on stage on this very important day in their lives. If you are in such a situation and would like to be a part of this, please contact me as soon as possible prior to Commencement Day. We do need some notification so that we can make the necessary plans.
 
The other item is that I ask you to contact me directly if you are in a situation where you may have difficulty in navigating the steps of the stage or in walking at the pace of the Procession. We will make any necessary arrangements to allow you to progress to your seat on stage.
 
I look forward to working with you in our wonderful celebration.
