Information regarding the 2024 Commencement Ceremony for Faculty & Other Members of the Instructional Staff


Dear Colleagues,

Commencement Day offers our Lehman College community the opportunity to celebrate the conferring of degrees to our graduating student body. We are eager to recognize the unique class of 2024 on Thursday, May 30th, at 10:00 am on Lehman's South Field-rain or shine. Please note the information below is a recent update to the Event. We expect a lengthier Program: To honor each graduate properly, we will be calling the names of all graduates as they cross the stage. This means the ceremony will be longer than in previous years. We appreciate your patience and understanding as we take the time to recognize every graduate's hard work and achievement. We expect you to stay until all of the graduates' have been called

Following Lehman's long-established practice, we anticipate all full-time members of the faculty and administrative officers to take part in the procession in celebration of our students. Instructional staff members, including adjunct professors/lecturers, visiting professors, HEO series staff, and retired faculty, are invited to participate in the academic procession.

Faculty, instructional staff, and administrative officers (not seated on the dais) who will be processing will assemble in the East Dining Room, located on the first floor of the Music Building. There is no rehearsal scheduled. A light breakfast and beverages will be available at 8:30 am; please arrive between 8:30 and 9:00 am. The procession line will form with the assistance of Faculty Marshals in the East Dining Room at approximately 9:15 am.
