You are cordially invited to the annual Academic Convocation to commemorate the start of the 2019-2020 academic year. Our Academic Convocation calls together faculty, staff and administration to recognize and celebrate the different yet equally essential contributions we make to DePaul University.
Convocation will be held on Thursday, September 5th at St. Vincent de Paul Church, 1010 W. Webster Avenue on the Lincoln Park Campus. The ceremony will begin at 10:30 am and is anticipated to last 90 minutes.
Members of the faculty and staff are invited and encouraged to dress in academic regalia and to participate in the academic procession from the Quad to the Church. Regalia distribution will take place on Thursday, September 5th on the Quad at the Lincoln Park Campus between 8:30 - 10:00 am. We will form our procession and begin processing towards the church at approximately 10:15 am. If you are planning to attend but are not participating in the procession, it is recommended you arrive at the Church by 10:15am to find open seating. Immediately following the ceremony, there will be a formal luncheon in the Student Center, Room 120A/B.
All orders for academic regalia must be submitted no later than Wednesday, August 7, 2019. We will be uable to accept regalia orders after this date. If you miss the order deadline, unfortunately you will not be able to participate in the procession. RSVPs for the luncheon will be accepted until August 29th or until we reach seating capacity.
Thank you and best wishes for a successful 2019-2020 academic year!
