University Convocation signals the beginning of our academic year. This important event gives us an opportunity to reconnect as a academic community, to officially introduce and welcome new students into this special community and to embrace La Verne as their Alma Mater.
The program will include special messages from President Lieberman, Provost Reed, and Robert (Rob) Ruiz, Director of Forensics, guest speaker and recipient of the Excellence in Teaching Award. In addition, we will ceremoniously induct our new students into our community. We encourage all members of our University community to join us. Come together as departments, offices, programs, and especially classes.
