The 2011 Commencement ceremonies are taking place Saturday, May 28. The 9 a.m. ceremony celebrates graduates from the Schools of Education, Arts and Humanities, and Business and Economics. The 3 p.m. ceremony recognizes the Schools of Social Sciences, and Science and Technology.
Commencement is a day when the university celebrates our students' accomplishments with their friends and families. The success of the day depends entirely on the good work of employees of SSU; those people who interact and support students throughout their years with us.
Below are the expectations for staff employees on Commencement day.
All managers (MPP) are expected to work Commencement day. Preferences will be accommodated as much as possible. MPPs who are unable to work Commencement should seek approval from their vice president and let the email@example.com know as soon as possible.
Exempt staff (non-MPPs) are encouraged to work Commencement day. Managers of exempt staff may authorize informal time off in accordance with staff bargaining contracts.
Volunteers (non-MPP, non-exempt) who wish to work at one or both of the ceremonies, should seek approval of their manager as CTO or overtime will be accrued.
We simply couldn't have a successful event with out you. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with your availability and job preference by April 15.
