Dear NEOMED Faculty:

On Saturday, May 6, NEOMED will graduate our next class of transformational leaders from the Colleges of Medicine, Pharmacy and Graduate Studies at the NEOMED Commencement Ceremony at E.J. Thomas Performing Arts Hall.

We invite you to RSVP and join us in the celebration by participating in the faculty march.

Schedule for May 6:

  • Faculty check-in begins at 9 a.m.
  • Faculty line-up begins at 9:30 a.m.
  • Processional begins at 10 a.m.
  • The estimated end time is 12:45 p.m. with a reception in the E.J. Thomas lobbies to follow.

On this page, you can confirm your plans to march with the faculty and to communicate your need for graduation regalia. RSVP Deadline is March 3, 2023. Your RSVP is necessary even if you have/will provide your own regalia so that we can organize the march order and seating.

Regalia pick up will be communicated to all faculty who RSVP.

Regalia return will be available at E.J. Thomas Hall following the ceremony.

No late RSVP requests accepted: Due to the inability to secure regalia for faculty after the March 3 deadline, we CANNOT ACCEPT any late RSVP requests from faculty unless you have your own regalia.

NEOMED President, Dr. John Langell, our college deans and our NEOMED graduates would be honored by your attendance.
