2012-2013 Convocations Schedule
The weekly convocation series is a shared campus experience that brings students, faculty, and staff together for one hour for a lecture or presentation from specialists in a variety of disciplines. The goal of the convocation series is to stimulate thought and conversation on a wide range of subjects. Convocations are open to the public and free of charge.
When permission is granted by the speakers, convocations will be streamed live on the Internet and available for on-demand viewing afterward. Tune in here.
Recordings of convocations prior to the academic year have been archived here. Videos of many past convocations are also in the Gould Library collection.
Carleton students, faculty, and staff may submit suggestions for future convocation speakers with this online form.
Convocation: Stephanie Kinnunen
Stephanie Kinnunen is CEO and Co-Founder of NEED magazine, the first independent magazine dedicated solely to global and domestic humanitarian issues. NEED magazine creates exposure for humanitarian aid via an educational, artistic, visual narrative of human stories, both around the world and domestically. This exposure offers an innovative and dynamic approach to building awareness and increasing support for relief organizations and Humanitarian Aid. NEED magazine does not have a political agenda, but rather seeks to inspire volunteer work by telling the stories of people currently doing humanitarian work and accompanying those stories with outstanding photography. Their motto is "We are not out to save the world but to tell the stories of those who are."
