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Recordings of convocations prior to the academic year have been archived here.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.
