Fall 2016

Dear faculty colleagues:

I’d like to extend many thanks to those who participated in the Commencement 2016 festivities. We continue to have good support from our faculty at that 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.

Details about next year’s Commencement season will begin to populate these pages in the spring, with the online registration to march and ordering of regalia reopening in mid-April 2017. 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 2017 dates and times of Thursday, June 8, from 9:30 am to 12:15 pm for Hooding and Friday, June 9, from 8:45 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.
