The university requires staff or students to volunteer as macebearers for the upcoming December graduation ceremonies.
The macebearers are needed to:
- lead the platform party (procession) in and out of Jameson Hall at the start and end of ceremonies; and
- assist with providing academic dress to staff members joining the platform party.
Macebearing is voluntary, and there is no payment for providing this service.
