Report of the Convocation Committee
for academic year 1998-1999
The Convocation Committee met on alternate weeks from September through the week of Convocation to plan the event for this past year. In addition, they looked ahead and began to discuss the Convocation for 1999. The date for Convocation has been placed on the Academic Calendar for 1999 and the committee has conferred by e-mail as they arrange for a speaker and other related activities.
Faculty input about the direction this event should take in the future has been obtained through informal discussions, but a brief questionnaire will also be sent out over Raven and that information will be used to guide the committee in planning for this next year and for future Convocations.
Several ideas about using different groups on campus in connection with Convocation have been presented and will be investigated further.
