Convocations and Sponsored Events

The Convocation Program, overseen by the Convocations Committee, brings speakers to campus to help foster a lively intellectual and artistic culture. The campus reserves the first Thursday of each month (excluding December, January, and May) during the academic year from 11:10 a.m. to 12:10 pm as the Convocation Hour. During the Convocation Hour, no other events may be scheduled on campus by faculty, staff, or students, with the exception of official Board of Trustees meetings and academic classes that begin at noon. All campus offices are urged to close for the Convocation Hour with the exception of those providing essential or emergency services.'
