Annual Buffalo State ceremonies, hallmarks of the academic year, and special ocassions, such as a presidential inauguration, afford faculty and staff the opportunity to participate in full academic regalia. Faculty and staff can prepare to participate in Commencement and convocations by either purchasing academic regalia or renting by occasion.
Faculty and staff interested in the investment of purchasing academic regalia should contact Marybeth Keller in the bookstore at firstname.lastname@example.org, (716) 878-5509. Style and pricing information is available. Purchase prices vary. Please plan on 10 weeks for delivery.
Regalia rentals are offered for those who do not own regalia. Faculty and staff may rent academic regalia through the bookstore for marching in the convocations, Commencement, and on an event-by-event basis. Announcements regarding pricing and order deadlines are announced prior to each ceremony and are posted on the ceremony websites by the sponsoring departments.
There are a limited number of doctor's and master's gowns available for loan through the Academic Affairs Office. Marchers generally supply their own caps and hoods (owned or rented through the bookstore). Several caps of various sizes are available. Several doctors and master's hoods are available for loan though they may not match the marcher's discipline and institution of highest degree.
Please contact Academic Affairs for availability and to reserve.
