Beadle Volunteers

Beadles play a vital role in ensuring that Convocation runs smoothly. Beadles manage the procession of the graduating class. They guide students to their seats, direct graduates to the stage to receive their diplomas, and help them to exit at the end of the program. Beadles also help students who arrive late, and they assist students with accessibility concerns and issues. The role is open to both faculty and staff and training is provided.

Fall Convocation will be held on Saturday, November 4, 2023. The schedule of ceremonies is available on the Ceremony Information page.

If you are interested in becoming a Beadle, please register by completing the online form below before October 13, 2023.

If you have any questions, please contact Kathy McKinley, Assistant University Secretary.
