Calling for Volunteers: UHD Commencement Ceremony, Dec. 19

It's that time again where we ask for your help with our commencement ceremony. As a reminder, the University of Houston-Downtown Commencement for December graduates will be held on Saturday, Dec. 19, at Minute Maid Park. Faculty will assemble in the Diamond Club in Minute Maid Park located at the corner of Texas at Hamilton Street. Robing space for faculty will be provided.


Approximately 75 volunteers are needed to help welcome families and friends to the venue, distribute programs, direct guests to seats, help student to check in and help with special accommodations or other needs that may arise.

Helping out with our commencement ceremony is a fun and meaningful activity. Sign up and become part of one of the most important UHD events of the year in our own downtown neighborhood. To volunteer, complete the online Volunteer Sign-Up Form.
