University Convocation 2017

Chancellor Phil Dubois invites faculty, staff, and students to the University Convocation in Cone University Center’s McKnight Hall at 9:30 a.m. on Thursday, August 17, 2017. 

Preceding Convocation, a reception will be held for the campus community at 8:30 a.m. in the Lucas Room. 

The University Convocation is a chance for members of the campus community to hear about UNC Charlotte’s long-term goals and immediate plans and issues. Speakers include the President of the Staff Council and President of the Student Body. The Faculty President will present the faculty agenda for 2017-18.   

Also, addressing the campus community will be Provost Joan Lorden and Chancellor Dubois, who will speak on the state of the University.

The University Convocation is a time to welcome new members of the faculty and professional staff and to recognize faculty members who have been granted permanent tenure as well as those who are beginning their 25th year of service to the University. 

The newest Bonnie E. Cone Early-Career Professor in Teaching will also be introduced.

A general faculty meeting in the form of a question-and-answer session will immediately follow the Convocation. All members of the campus community are welcome to remain for the meeting.
