Staff Volunteers

​Dear AUB Staff,​

The university is looking for the assistance of staff volunteers during the 150th commencement week between May 27 and June 1, 2019.  This is a wonderful opportunity to get an "up close and personal" look at one of AUB's great traditions and to lend a helping hand to your university as well.

AUB will be hosting two ceremonies as part of its commencement exercises: The Honorary Doctorate and Graduate Commencement Ceremony on Friday, May 31, 2019 at 8:00 pm; and the Undergraduate Commencement Ceremony on Saturday, June 1, 2019 at 8:00 pm at the Green Field.

We are looking for staff volunteers to participate in the planning process and to help during the events between May 27 and June 1, 2019 by welcoming and guiding guests, assisting with crowd control, and facilitating communications.

All staff volunteers need to attend one training session on:

- Monday, May 20, 2019 from 2:00-3:00 pm at the Office of Communications-Building 42-Facing New Women's Dorms-Room 212

In this session, you will be introduced briefly to the basics of commencement activities, rituals and norms, as well as general planning. Each staff will either supervise a group of student volunteers or will assist in a specific zone.

To be a commencement facilitator, please click on this link here to register NO LATER than Monday, May 13, 2019.​


Thank you and we look forward to ​working with you.
