Faculty Information

It is time once again to celebrate the accomplishments of the graduating class by honoring individuals with awards and saluting the class through ceremony. As faculty, your participation matters! In fact, one of the highlights of last year’s Convocation was the standing ovation the faculty gave students at the end of the ceremony. We invite you to participate again this year.
