2013-2014 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.

You are invited to participate in the convocation program in a variety of ways:

  • The best way is to personally attend the weekly convocations and ask a question of the speaker.
  • If you are unable to attend in person, convocations are streamed live and available for on-demand viewing afterward by tuning in here.  (Please note that there may be occasions when the speaker does not allow us to do this.)
  • Recordings of past convocations have been archived here.  Videos of many past convocations are also in the Gould Library collection.
  • Carleton students, faculty, and staff are encouraged to submit suggestions for future convocation speakers with this online form.
