Convocation

Literally a “calling together,” the University’s convocation assembles all elements of the University community: degree candidates and their families, friends, faculty, deans, officers of the university, the trustees of the university, the provost, and the president.  The first convocation was celebrated in January 1893 under founding president William Rainey Harper.

The 531st Convocation was held on Saturday, June 9, 2018. 


The 530th Convocation was held on Saturday, June 10, 2017.
