The Honors Convocation is held each spring on the last Friday of spring term to recognize faculty and students for their accomplishments and their service to the community. All faculty are strongly encouraged to attend and take part in the academic procession. All departmental activities should be scheduled so they don’t conflict with the Honors Convocation.

The timeline for preparing for Honors Convo is as follows:

  • January – Members of your department are being confirmed or solicited to serve on student selection committees.
  • February – Prize coordinators will receive a memo asking them to identify students who are receiving grants/fellowships. All faculty will receive an email listing the student prizes available and who to contact.  You and your departmental colleagues should contact the appropriate prize coordinator to nominate students for prizes.
  • Late April – Deadline for prize coordinator to submit names of students who have won prizes or awards to the Office of the Provost for inclusion in the Honors Convo brochure. 
  • Mid-May – Look for the procession line-up and class schedules in the Carleton Today and the East Laird Times. Make plans with your department colleagues to attend Honors Convocation.
