View the 2021 Endicott College Convocation




Convocation is a tradition that marks the start of the academic year and welcomes the incoming class to Endicott. This year, we are inviting all members of the community to join us for our Convocation Ceremony on September 13, 2021, in the MacDonald Gymnasium. The event starts promptly at 4 p.m., so please plan to arrive by 3:45 p.m.

Dr. Samuel Alexander, recipient of the 2021 Academic Excellence Award and Professor of English, will provide the Convocation address. There will also be a historic announcement of transformational impact for the Endicott. 

Faculty walking in the processional are kindly asked to wear full regalia including robes, mortarboard or tam, and hood. 

Following Convocation, please join the Endicott community for dinner by the Lakes.
