It’s that time again! Convocation will commence on Sunday, an event meant to welcome our new undergraduate and transfer students to UMKC, introduce them to campus, and engage them with the faculty to support their transition to UMKC.
Convocation will be held August 18th at 1:00pm in the Swinney Recreation Center. All faculty members are welcome to join in this tradition in Swinney. Contact your Dean for the academic unit-specific portion of the program. Following the formal event, students will be guided to academic unit-specific events, ending with UnionFest in the UMKC Student Union around 2:00 p.m.
Convocation provides a great opportunity for faculty to engage with students, which will help them make the connections they need to start their academic career in a positive way. Forming those valuable relationships early in students’ careers provides a solid foundation for their academic success at UMKC.
