Dear Senior Lecturer Colleagues:

I'd like to extend many thanks to those who participated in the Commencement 2015 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.

Commencement 2016 is right around the corner and as usual, we ask you to register online to march in the Academic Procession. The webform may also be used to request rental regalia. Details for this year's Commencement are being finalized, so in the meantime, I refer you to the frequently asked questions within this website. If you have 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 3, 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.

Paul A. Lagace
