CWI Celebrates Inclusivity at Commencement. We recognize that graduation day may pose accessibility challenges for some students. We are committed to creating an inclusive and celebratory experience for all graduates, and accommodations are available upon request.
Please notify CWI of your accessibility needs by Friday, May 3. This allows us to ensure your smooth participation in the ceremony.
Some examples of available accommodations include:
- Preferred seating: We can reserve seating near an aisle or exit for easier access.
- Standing or moving freely: If sitting for extended periods is difficult, you may stand at the back or move as needed.
- Early dismissal: You may leave the ceremony a few minutes before the official ending.
Additional considerations: Towards the end of the ceremony, there will be celebratory music and confetti bursts. Please let us know if you require any adjustments related to sensory sensitivities. We are dedicated to accommodating your needs and look forward to celebrating your achievements with you!
We encourage guests who require special accommodations, such as accessible seating or assistance with mobility, to arrive early at 6:00 PM when public doors open. This allows extra time for us to ensure your comfort and enjoyment of the ceremony.
Seating Assistance: Friendly ExtraMile Arena ushers will be available to guide guests to their seats and provide any needed assistance.
Accessibility: Guests requiring elevator access should follow signs or inquire with an usher upon arrival.
Parking: All guests will be directed to designated Commencement ceremony parking near the arena. A short walk from the parking area to the arena entrance is required. Shuttles are available from parking garages.
Graduates, please email Heather Grayson at email@example.com with questions.
