2020 Honors Convocation Canceled
March 18, 2020
As previously announced, the University will continue remote instruction through the rest of the Spring semester. As a result, the 2020 Honors Convocation is being canceled.
Even without an event, we still want to recognize our students and faculty for their distinguished academic achievements. Students and faculty selected for awards this year will receive them at a later date. Recipient names will eventually be posted* on the Honors Convocation website.
Dr. George Ellenberg
Provost and Senior Vice President
