Marshals

View the February 2018 marshals.

Marshals are required for each convocation ceremony to direct the students in their actions on and off the stage. Marshals are required to wear regalia on stage. At least one marshal will be required for each program at the convocation ceremony.

Each marshal will be asked to:

  • assist the students in putting on their regalia;
  • hand out oath cards and help the students line up for the procession;
  • line the students up at the podium on stage to receive their credential;
  • lead the students off stage at the end of the ceremony.

If you are interested in marshalling a group of students, please email convocation@viu.ca or phone (250) 753-3245 local 2234.
