Matriculation Convocation is a long tradition at Lawrence at the beginning of each new academic year. It celebrates the Lawrence community coming back together and sets the tone for the work ahead. It is one of three convocations to be held during 2022-23.

Julie McQuinn, associate professor of music and faculty marshal, will lead a faculty procession.

As is part of the tradition, the Welcome Week Choir will perform, directed by Stephen Sieck, associate professor of music and co-director of Choral Studies, and Phillip Swan, associate professor of music and co-director of Choral Studies.

Madera Allan, associate professor of Spanish and chair of the Public Events Committee, will provide a welcome and an introduction to the convocation series.
