Welcome, MIT faculty and lecturers!

Commencement 2022 celebrations took place during the week of May 23, 2022, with the majority of the Advanced Degree Ceremonies taking place on Thursday, May 26, followed by the OneMIT Ceremony and the Undergraduate Ceremony, which took place on Friday, May 27.

Commencement 2023 is scheduled for June 1 and June 2 of next year. More information will be provided later this year. 

Many elements of this year’s celebrations will be familiar, but some are new. Faculty and lecturers are welcome to participate in all the ceremonies occurring from Thursday, May 26 through Saturday, May 28 (see Schedule). Your participation in the graduation festivities means a lot to our students, who really appreciate your being there to congratulate them. Many new alumni remark on how special it was to them to see a favorite faculty member there to witness their graduation.

In addition to holding festivities celebrating the Class of 2022, MIT will welcome the Classes of 2020 and 2021 for a special ceremony on Saturday, May 28.

The online form to register to participate and order regalia is still live. Please note that the deadline to order rental regalia has passed. If you are still in need of regalia, please indicate this on the registration form.

May 19: Faculty and lecturers who are participating in the OneMIT Ceremony, the Undergraduate Ceremony, and/or the Special Ceremony for 2020 and 2021 have been emailed instructions from Professor Leslie Kolodziejski, Faculty Marshal. If you did not receive the details yet, please check your spam box and if no luck, contact us to ensure that we have your registration.

Thank you! We look forward to celebrating the achievements of our students with you.
