LIU Brooklyn / LIU Pharmacy

Faculty may volunteer to assist as Commencement marshals for the student line up and seating. Please keep in mind that if you volunteer to help with the student line up and student seating you will not robe or march as part of the faculty processional. To volunteer as marshal please email, with your name, department, title, and phone number.

Faculty may also participate by simply marching with the faculty processional. All such faculty may order their Eco-friendly academic attire online at TBA. Faculty may collect regalia at the Graduation Bazaar, TBA.. After Commencement at Barclays Center, academic regalia must be returned to the Division of Campus Life in Pratt 121. If you have any questions please contact Rich Scibetti at (718) 488-1216, or
