Dear Senior Lecturer Colleagues:
It is with great pleasure that we invite Senior Lecturers to participate in the Commencement Exercises of the Institute on Friday, June 7, 2013. Participation of those who play a primary teaching role is essential to the success of this event, which truly celebrates the significant accomplishments of our students.
Details about Commencement 2013 are being finalized and online registration and ordering of regalia is now closed. If you would like to march at Commencement, please email Kimberly Nelson to see whether arrangements may be made. If you own all pieces of regalia and need simply to advise us of your plans to participate, please include that information in your message. For further information, I refer you to the list of frequently asked questions for Senior Lecturers. If you find anything not covered in these pages, please send a note to the Commencement office at firstname.lastname@example.org.
A final note: Commencement is a very special opportunity to honor our Institute students who have worked so hard to earn their MIT degrees. Please place Friday, June 7 from 8:45 am to 1:30 pm on your calendar now, and give serious thought to giving a small amount of time to being there and saying "great job" to our students. I look forward to working with you to make that happen.
Paul A. Lagace
