University of California, San Diego

June 1, 1999
SUBJECT: All-Campus Commencement
The interaction between a faculty member and a student is the core of the students educational experience at UCSD. The mutual goodwill and respect between faculty and students is essential to its success. The presence of faculty at the all campus graduation is an important symbolic display of faculty appreciation of the success attained by our graduating students and of good wishes for their continuing success. In addition many students value the opportunity, at the post ceremony lunch, to introduce their families to the role models who have shaped their academic careers.
Only 19 faculty requested academic regalia before the deadline for the all campus graduation. We have been told that it might still be possible to obtain regalia if ordered no later than June 2. We urge faculty to do so, and we also urge all faculty who have ordered regalia for college graduation ceremonies or who own their own, to attend the all campus graduation. John M. Goodkind Joe Leventhal Chair-Academic Senate President San Diego Division Associated Students
