All faculty and staff are strongly encouraged to attend the University’s Opening Convocation on Tuesday, August 27, at 4 p.m., in Buckley Center Auditorium. University president Rev. E. William Beauchamp, C.S.C., will share some thoughts to open the academic year and set the tone for what is sure to be another incredible year on the Bluff. A reception will be held immediately following the convocation in the Bauccio Commons Board Room.
As Fr. Beauchamp has said before, even though classes begin on Monday, August 26, for many the Opening Convocation is the moment when the new academic year really begins. “It is when we all come together in one place – when we see one another, say hello, share stories and news, greet new colleagues, and get strength and invigoration from one another,” he says. “This annual gathering is one of the events that marks us as a true learning community and it is for me one of the most exciting times of the year as things get underway.”
