5:00p.m - Edmunds Center

Convocation signifies the formal opening of the 2019-2020 academic year. All students, faculty and staff are asked to participate.

Faculty (in academic regalia) should gather in the Hollis Center Lounge at 4:30 p.m. in preparation for the processional. In the event of rain, faculty are to proceed directly to the Edmunds Center, southeast side of the lobby. Deadline to order rental regalia through the Stetson Bookstore is August 8, 2019.

Staff members should plan to arrive at the Edmunds Center at 4:30 p.m. Ushers will be available to direct you to designated seating on the floor, directly behind faculty.

Students will be seated by their graduating class. 

Convocation will count as a Cultural Credit. Students will scan their ID’s as they leave the Edmunds Center following the ceremony.

Following Convocation, students, faculty and staff are invited to join us for a Community Dinner in the newly-renovated Carlton Union Building (CUB). Students with meal plans will swipe their ID for entry. Faculty, staff and students without a meal plan will be complimentary.

Convocation will also be live streamed on the Stetson Broadcast Productions channel on
