The HWS Convocation for the 2005-06 academic year will begin at 5 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 31 on the lawn in front of Stern Hall.
Faculty who plan to participate, in academic regalia, should contact Lorraine Heatherly in the Registrar's office. Those who own their own regalia are invited to wear it. Regalia can be ordered through her, and the deadline is today.
For new faculty members, she will need to know rank, the school from which the highest degree was earned, and other information.
In addition to welcoming the new classes, the convocation ceremony is a time when the president offers his vision for the coming year.
