Implementation of ongoing changes to the Commencement Ceremony and processes, based on student, staff, faculty, and administration feedback. Multiple initiates were created in an effort to expand participation to all areas within the University.
The Faculty congratulatory line was proposed in the Fall of 2016 by faculty to increase participation and visibility in the Commencement Ceremonies. This new tradition will continue in future ceremonies. Increasing participation of faculty members has also been completed by faculty volunteering to assist in the lineup and marshaling of students during the Commencement Ceremonies. The Committee, collaborated with Dr. Steven Stochaj and Aggie Innovation from the College of Engineering, to create confetti canons for the ceremonies.
