We wish to extend an invitation to all faculty and CS Instructors to attend Convocation. Seats will be reserved only for faculty and CS Instructors who RSVP. Faculty and CS Instructors who RSVP to the ceremonies will be seated near the stage where graduates exit the stage, and may easily shake hands with their students from this location.

Regalia Rental for Faculty and CS Instructors

All faculty and CS Instructors must wear regalia to participate in the Convocation Ceremonies and to sit in the reserved seating area. Faculty and CS Instructors will be responsible for ordering regalia themselves via the Gaspard website. Orders must be submitted before May 4th, 2018. Regalia rentals will be provided at no charge to faculty and CS Instructors who submit their order prior to the May 4th deadline.

Do You Own Your Regalia?

If you have your own regalia and would like to attend the Convocation Ceremonies, you must still RSVP to convocation@langara.ca. In the RSVP email, please be sure to include which ceremonies you plan to attend so that we can be sure there is space reserved for you. If you require your regalia to be steamed prior to the ceremonies, please contact convocation@langara.ca before Friday, May 18th and we can arrange a time to have it dropped off at Registrar & Enrolment Services.

Transportation

After reserving regalia, faculty and CS Instructors may request transit passes from the Convocation Team to cover the cost of their transport between the College and the Orpheum. Please email convocation@langara.ca to request transit passes.

Joining the Platform Party

If you wish to be part of the Platform Party (on stage and subject to availability), please contact Alice Hsu directly at ahsu@langara.ca before May 4th to make your request and order your regalia. Please note that members of the Platform Party will not be able to leave their seats to shake hands with the graduates. If you would like to shake hands with your students, we suggest requesting a seat in the reserved seating area off of the stage.

We hope that you will be able to join us to help celebrate student success!

If you have any questions, please email convocation@langara.ca.
