Location: ASUI Kibbie Activity Center, North Concourse access
Join Interim President Don Burnett, faculty, staff and new students and their families for the 2013 University Convocation.
Convocation is the official welcome and start to the academic year. Some elements of convocation resemble commencement (graduation) which marks the culmination of education at the University of Idaho. In academia, the word "convocation" refers to a ceremonial assembly of the members of a college or university. Traditionally, academic convocations celebrate special events such as the beginning of the academic year or the anniversary of an institution.
A University BBQ will follow at 11:30 a.m. -- 1:30 p.m. at the Idaho Commons Plaza.
