While we cover the logistics of the ceremony, we still need your help! You are cordially invited to volunteer as a marshal for MSU Denver’s Fall 2023 Commencement, where you get an up-close opportunity to cheer on your students as they walk across the stage. As you cheer them on, you can help point graduates (and their mortarboards) in the right direction and help with all the little things that make Commencement possible. 

Because many of you have instructed, advised and mentored students on their journey to a degree, your participation is an integral part of the day.
