Held at the beginning of each academic year, Convocation is a chance for student leaders, staff, faculty, and administrators to celebrate the year’s launch and to reconnect around the University’s core mission of educational excellence. Faculty, staff and students are encouraged to attend.
The morning starts off at 8:30 a.m. with refreshments in the lobby of Weill Hall, socializing after the summer—or for students, a chance to meet those who will teach and/or support you in your college career. A Faculty Showcase features Professors Jesse Bengson, Felicia Kalker, Owen Anfinson, Shannon Benine, Armand Gilinsky, Sandra Newton and Rhianna Casesa, who will share brief highlights of their exciting scholarship . And meet and hear from the new president of the University, Dr. Judy K. Sakaki, among others.
