Mark your calendar for Convocation, which will be on Wednesday, August 18 at 3 p.m. The annual event will be streamed live. Convocation and President Coley’s State of the University address mark the start of a new academic year. All faculty and staff are invited to attend the virtual gathering. This year, Convocation will be on a Wednesday due to changes in the Academic Calendar and other scheduling matters. Colleges, divisions and departments are encouraged to schedule their kickoff meetings at other times to accommodate this change.
