Faculty members from each college are chosen to serve as Marshals to assist with the ceremony. These Marshals carry the KSU baton as they lead the faculty processional into the arena and escort faculty members to their seats. At the end of the ceremony, the Marshal leads the faculty in the recessional and falls in line behind the platform party.
Chief Faculty Marshal
The honor of leading the academic procession as Chief Faculty Marshal is given to the chair of the Faculty Senate.
Faculty participating in commencement exercises need to dress in their full regalia, which includes robe, tam and hood. Please contact the KSU Bookstore for purchase or rental if you do not have regalia.Bookstore
