Commencement Ambassadors Needed

Friday, April 29, 2022
Dear colleagues,
 
As you all know, we will be returning to in-person commencement ceremonies on May 26 and 27 at Oracle Park. In addition to this year’s graduates, we will be welcoming back hundreds of students whose ceremonies were held virtually over the last two years.
 
The presence of SF State faculty, staff and administrators is always important, but especially this year when we’ll be celebrating graduates who have endured and overcome so many challenges. If your job duties will permit it, please consider signing up to be an ambassador for one or both of these ceremonies. Assignments are 1:30-9:30 p.m. each day.
 
Ambassador volunteers are required to get supervisor approval and attend at least one informational Zoom training. Trainings are scheduled for May 18 from 2-3 p.m. and May 19 from 11 a.m.-noon.
 
Many assignments involve walking and standing. If you require accommodations, please note them on the sign-up form under "Questions or requests.” If you have other questions, please contact Dania Russell at drussell@sfsu.edu.
 
Our commencements are always special as we celebrate many who have had to work inordinately hard to make their academic dreams come true and many who are the first in their families to graduate from college. It is a joyous occasion and I look forward to seeing you there. 
 
Whether or not you are able to volunteer, thank you for all you have done to support our students on their pathway to graduation.
 
Best,

Lynn's Signature

Lynn Mahoney, Ph.D.
