Resolution submitted to the UH Manoa Faculty Senate
by the Committee on Professional Matters
Regarding Commencement Ceremony
"Whereas the process by which the most recent commencement ceremony was changed and undertaken without consultation with the Faculty; and
Whereas the content and structure of the ceremony is felt to be out of accord with tradition, in particular that the Faculty no longer has precedence in a process intended to complete the transition of students to graduates;
Be it resolved that the Senate of the Faculty requires of the University Administration that the ceremony revert to prior tradition until altered by due process, upon consultation with the Faculty."
