The UVa-Wise fall convocation is a joyous, important celebration where we welcome new students, reconnect with friends and colleagues, and launch another academic year. Just as it does at commencement, the faculty wear regalia to mark the event’s significance as we celebrate our commitment to engaged learning while living and working in a community of mutual respect, integrity, stewardship and excellence.
All faculty, students and staff are invited to participate in the processional. The processional will line up at 9:30 in front of the College Relations office. The processional will be led by the ROTC Color Guard, followed by the Marching Highland Cavaliers, the Gonfalon, students, staff and faculty. The processional will begin the walk to the Prior Center at 9:45 a.m.
An order of program will be posted on this page in a few weeks. For more information please call the office of College Relations at 276-376-1027 email@example.com.
