Volunteers needed to work Commencement ceremonies

Workers will be compensated for Saturday

The Ohio University Commencement Committee needs volunteers to work the three commencement ceremonies, June 11-12.

The Commencement ceremonies will take place on:

•    Friday, June 11 at 9:30 a.m. - Master's and Doctoral degree candidates

•    Saturday, June 12 at 9:30 a.m. – Bachelor's degree candidates for College of Business, College of Fine Arts, Regional Higher Education, Russ College of Engineering and Technology, Scripps College of Communication, and University College

•    Saturday, June 12 at 2 p.m. - Bachelor's degree candidates for College of Arts and Sciences, College of Education, College of Health and Human Services, and Honors Tutorial College

Volunteers need to arrive at the Convocation Center no later than 7:15 a.m. to work the graduate and morning undergraduate ceremonies and no later than 11:45 a.m. for the afternoon undergraduate ceremony. You must sign in for your assigned shifts at each Commencement ceremony to insure payment.

Volunteers will not receive compensation for Friday because it is a regular workday. A stipend will be added to Saturday volunteers' next regular paycheck following Commencement.

Any classified and contract staff members who assist at Commencement on Saturday will be compensated $50 for each ceremony.

Please complete the attached form and return it via e-mail by Tuesday, May 25.

Volunteers should contact Event Services at 740-593-4020 regarding any changes in their availability in order to minimize potential payroll complications.

"Due to the time frame that Commencement falls in relation to the end of the fiscal year, we will be approving the stipends the week prior to Commencement," said Sujit Chemburkar, executive director of event services and co-chair of the Commencement Committee.

Volunteers will receive a confirmation e-mail with their Commencement assignment and will be asked to attend the Commencement orientation meeting at 2 p.m. Thursday, June 10.
