Convocation is a collegewide convening of administrators, faculty, and staff designed to "kickoff" the fall and spring academic semesters. Convocation occurs on the Friday prior to the start of the academic semester. Convocation activities include welcomes from constituency group leaders, introductions of new and newly promoted faculty, staff, and administrators, an address from the Chancellor and Board of Trustees member, welcome and address from the President, and a program designed to inform and involve the college community. Convocation is held as part of the college's flex program and all full time faculty are required to attendance as part of their flex obligation.
