The weekly convocation series is a shared experience that is at the foundation of Carleton values. Students, faculty and staff from across campus gather for one hour for a speech or performance from specialists in a variety of disciplines. The goal of the convocation series is to provoke thinking and promote discussion outside the classroom on a broad range of subjects. Convocations are open to the public and free of charge.
Convocation takes place at Skinner Memorial Chapel.
Convocation takes place at Skinner Memorial Chapel
The Chapel is the heart of religious and spiritual life at Carleton, serving as a place of worship and interfaith dialogue for both campus and community. In a typical week, the chapel may host a centering prayer and meditation, a Torah study group, a Christian vespers service, Buddhist meditation, a Labyrinth walk, and an interfaith social justice meeting.
