Dear Commencement Weekend Volunteers,

Thank you in advance for donating your time and talents to make this a memorable event for our graduates and their families.

As you know, Commencement is a special time on campus. Students who have worked tirelessly for years finally receive the fruits of their labor: an RIT degree. For many of them, this is the start of the next stage of their life and the beginning of their professional career.  For their parents, friends and families, this weekend is the product of years of support and encouragement of their graduate, and a day they will not forget.

With more than 30,000 guests visiting our campus over two days, there is simply no way we could make this event a success without you. Whether you are answering questions, driving a golf cart or working behind the scenes, you are making a difference and your contribution ensures our event will be one of the highest caliber.

Thank you for your dedication to this special event and to RIT.

Jeremy Haefner
Provost and Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs
