Staff Volunteers

Dear AUB Staff,

The university is looking for the assistance of staff volunteers during the 151st commencement week between May 29 and June 6, 2020.  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, June 5, 2020 at 7:30 pm; and the Undergraduate Commencement Ceremony on Saturday, June 6, 2020 at 7:30 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 29 and June 6, 2020 by welcoming and guiding guests, assisting with crowd control, and facilitating communications.

All staff volunteers need to attend one training session on:

- Friday, May 29, 2020 from 1:30-2:30 pm at building 518-Floor 2

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

To be a commencement facilitator, please click on this link to register NO LATER than Friday, May 15, 2020.


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