University Convocation Day is Wednesday

University Convocation Day activities, which will kick off our 2013-2014 academic year, will be Wednesday, Aug. 21, on the Winona campus.

The morning session will be highlighted by remarks from Brother William and keynote speaker Brother Robert Bimonte, FSC. In March 2013, Brother Robert was named the president of the National Catholic Education Association, an organization that serves more than 6,500 Catholic education institutions and 150,000 Catholic educators in Catholic elementary and secondary schools, religious education programs, seminaries, and colleges and universities. Brother Robert’s keynote address will address excellent teaching and engaged student learning. The morning session will also include an introduction to the HLC re-accreditation process. Following lunch, Brother Robert will present an interactive workshop on brain-compatible learning.
