Dear faculty colleagues:

I'd like to extend many thanks to those who participated in the Commencement 2014 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.

Commencement 2015 is right around the corner and as usual, we ask you to register to participate in Hooding and/or Commencement via the online form. You may also order regalia and request a guest ticket for the reserved seating section at Commencement through the form. Please note that if you are ordering regalia, submissions are requested by 9 am on Friday, May 8. Details about Hooding and Commencement 2015 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: 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 4 from 10:55 am to 1:30 pm, and Friday, June 5 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.
