Spring Convocation video and photographs

June 26, 2014

Video of the Divinity School's Diploma, Hooding, and Awards Ceremony at the 519th Convocation is now available. The ceremony  was held in Bond Chapel on Saturday, June 14th, after the campus-wide Convocation. 

Video of the Convocation address, by Professor Charles Kerwin, the Edwin and Betty L. Bergman Distinguished Service Professor at Chicago Harris School of Public Policy, is also available. In keeping with a long-standing UChicago custom of featuring faculty speakers at Convocation, Charles discussed his research in his address. The speech, titled “Type and Context,” examined some of Charles’ work on conspicuous consumption and socioeconomic differences, reminding the Class of 2014 of their singular social position—as graduates of a leading university, he explained, they would influence the lives of people with backgrounds and experiences very different from their own. 

Photographs of the day are also available. 

Congratulations to all our new alumni!
