March 22nd, 2022
This year our in-person graduation events return to campus and we’re running events for the Class of 2020, 2021 and 2022 in a mammoth 77 ceremonies spread across May, July and August.
We always have an extraordinary level of support from volunteer stewards from across the university and this year we’ll be hoping to have all our regular stewards back as well as welcoming newer team members to join us and help make the events a special occasion for current students and graduates from the last two years.
Initially we’re asking for volunteer support for May (although the call out for July and August will be advertised soon) We’re running the event at the East Midlands Conference Centre which is a change from our usual venue, so please keep an eye out nearer the time for updated maps.
We welcome stewards from all areas of the university and will be providing briefing sessions for those who are new (and those who are feeling a bit rusty after two years away).
The sign-up process is easy. Please check with your line manager that they’re happy for you to come along and then fill in our form.
We need over 1,300 hours of staff support this summer, so please assume that you’ll be needed for any ceremonies that you volunteer for and hold the time in your diaries.
We have a stewarding sharepoint site that gives details on the types of roles available and the dates and times you’ll be needed for.
We know that colleagues across the university are always keen to support graduations, so thank you in advance for coming to our aid at our busiest ever time.
