About Commencement 2016
The 45th UIS commencement ceremony will be held on May 14, 2016, at 4 p.m., at the Prairie Capital Convention Center in downtown Springfield, 9th and Adams streets. See our Visitors page for directions and information for out of town guests.
Each year, the faculty and students who comprise each program committee on campus select one graduating student who best exemplifies the goals and spirit of each program. Those students are then designated as program marshals for the ceremony and may be identified on commencement day by the gold stoles they wear.
The procession is led by the Grand Marshal. The Grand Marshal is an honorary title conferred each year on a professor by vote of the UIS faculty. The 2016 Grand Marshal is TBD
