  • Flag Bearers

    Graduating students have an opportunity to represent a flag during the International Parade of Flags, which is a distinct feature that opens each of our commencement ceremonies. It’s a procession of flags from around the world representing the university’s diverse student body at the Providence Campus.

    Eligible graduates interested in carrying the flag of their ancestry, heritage, citizenship or a favorite nation should email Joanne Yen Gilbert in the International Center before March 21, 2014. Sign-up is managed on a first-come, first-served basis. In the email, provide your:

    1. Name and JWU ID#
    2. Major
    3. Country or heritage
    4. Telephone number
