University Convocation Day is Aug. 20 in Minneapolis

This year, University Convocation, Wednesday, Aug. 20, will be held on our Twin Cities campus.

The morning session will be highlighted by remarks from Brother William and our keynote speaker, Carolyn Y. Woo, Ph.D., president and CEO of Catholic Relief Services (CRS), the official international humanitarian agency of the Catholic community in the United States.  Dr. Woo’s keynote presentation will address faith, action, and results.  Following lunch, there will be a reflection session on Dr. Woo’s presentation, and an opportunity to hear updates on the HLC re-accreditation process, branding, and the campus master plan, as well as concluding remarks from Brother William.

We expect about 350 faculty and staff members to be in attendance at University Convocation.  

A bus has been arranged. The buses will depart from the front of the Toner Student Center at 7:15 a.m.
