Dear faculty colleagues:

I'd like to extend many thanks to those who participated in the Commencement 2015 festivities. We continue to have good support from our faculty at this exciting time of year, and it means a lot to our students, who really appreciate your being there to congratulate them. Many new alumni often remark on how special it was to them to see Professor xxx there as they walked up and over to receive a diploma.

Preparations for Hooding and Commencement 2016 are already underway. Details will continue to be finalized throughout the year, 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 commencement@mit.edu.

A final note: these two events are very special opportunities to honor our Institute students who have worked so hard to earn their MIT degrees. Please place these important dates and times of Thursday, June 2 (morning/early afternoon - time TBA) for Doctoral Hooding and Friday, June 3 from 8:30 am to 1:30 pm for Commencement 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
