We invite you to participate in the upcoming University Convocation, the official opening of the academic year. At Convocation faculty and administrators will march in academic regalia to welcome the new class. We believe that having a strong representation by the faculty and administration in this event will help us in establishing both the seriousness of our commitment to the academic enterprise, and our desire to welcome new students into the community of scholars.
Following the event we will have a reception for faculty and administrative staff. We also invite everyone to join us after the reception for the President’s Picnic in Walnut Grove. We believe this event will be well worth your investment of time and energy and will move us as a community toward the goal of being student centered.
In order to properly prepare for the event, we need to gather a fair approximation of the number of administrators who will be joining us. To help us in the planning process we are asking you to let us know of your intention to join us. Please take a moment to complete the form below and submit it, by July 19, 2013. We will provide you with additional details of the event closer to the actual date. Thank you for your support and assistance.
Please complete the form only if you PLAN to participate. Details will be sent to your email address once it is closer to the date of the event.
