Volunteering at Commencement

Our largest need for volunteers each year is during the Fall and Spring Commencement ceremonies. Every year, the University of Miami graduates nearly 4,000 students across one ceremony in the Fall, and four ceremonies in the Spring, and welcomes some 20,000 family and friends to celebrate. We have 200 available volunteer positions for each ceremony. Volunteers who give of their time in the Fall, receive early bird priority to sign up for their preferred position in one or all four of the Commencement ceremonies in the Spring.
