Marshals

Each year, the faculty and students from each academic program choose a graduating student to serve as program marshal. These students, who best exemplify the goals and spirit of their programs, are identifiable at the ceremony by the gold stoles they wear. The grand marshal who leads the commencement procession is a faculty member, chosen each year by a vote of his or her colleagues.
