Convocation Week

Usually scheduled the week before classes begin.

It is scheduled at both the Geauga Campus and the new Regional Academic Center.. 

Please contact Shelley Urchek, slurchek@kent.edu if you need more information.

Convocation serves many different purposes.

  • This is an opportunity for the faculty at both facilities to assemble collegiately at the beginning of the semester as a unified institute of higher learning.
  • Faculty are in service under a single mission and committed to sharing information about the conditions and climate into which they will be working to fulfill that mission.
  • Convocation sets the tone and serves as an inspiring opening to the work that is accomplished in the coming semester. 
  • Convocation serves as a recognition of previous work accomplished, a sharing of knowledge and expertise in different specialties and disciplines. 
  • It's a time to  build and strengthen professional relationship at convocation, as well as welcoming new colleagues.
