Faculty & Staff


Augsburg faculty are encouraged to attend each graduation ceremony and march in the processional to show support and encouragement to the graduates.

Faculty Participation

On the day of the ceremony, all participating faculty should meet in the Foss Atrium at 12:00 p.m. At approximately 12:45 p.m. the faculty will move and line both sides of 7 1/2 street to congratulate the graduates as they process into Si Melby Hall. The faculty will follow the graduates. Reserved seating has been arranged at the front of the hall for all participating faculty.

Departmental Receptions

All faculty at the ceremony are asked to greet graduates in their discipline after the ceremony at individual departmental receptions, which run from 2:30 – 4 p.m.



There are MANY volunteer opportunities available each day, and we encourage all staff to consider volunteering for a shift. Positions include ushering, taking tickets, and crowd management.

If you’re interested in volunteering for the event, please contact the Event & Conference Planning department at events@augsburg.edu or by calling x1104.
