Fall 2018 Convocation

Dear Members of the UMBC Community,
We look forward to your participation in our Fall 2018 Convocation on Tuesday, August 28 at 3:30 p.m. in the UMBC Event Center.
Convocation is a special opportunity for faculty and staff to welcome new students to the UMBC community. If you are interested in participating this year, please take a moment to RSVP through our Online Convocation Form. The information you provide will assist us in event planning logistics and appropriate seating arrangements.
Marching in the procession requires academic regalia, which UMBC will subsidize the rental of for faculty and staff if needed. Regalia can be ordered now through August 10, 2018. Regalia ordered after August 3, however, will incur an expedited shipping fee to ensure timely delivery.
Following the Convocation ceremony, we will host a community-wide picnic on The Commons North Lawn. This is an excellent opportunity for faculty and staff to meet our incoming class, and I welcome everyone on campus to attend.
Thank you, and we look forward to your participation.
Philip Rous, Provost and Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs
