Join us as we celebrate 100 Years of Cooperative Education at the 2019 Convocation Ceremony

All faculty, advisors and professional staff are invited to join us for a community breakfast and Convocation Ceremony on Thursday, September 26.

Convocation marks the beginning of the academic year and offers the Drexel community a chance to rededicate ourselves to Drexel's mission of teaching, research and service to society. In addition to marking the beginning of the academic year, Convocation serves as a reminder of how fortunate we are to be part of a long legacy of educators and innovators, connected by a desire to shape future generations and build a stronger community.

This year, Convocation will be held in the Mandell Theater in the Creese Student Center. We will begin with breakfast in Behrakis Grand Hall. There will not be regalia for faculty. Faculty and professional staff are encouraged to dress in business casual.
