College of Pharmacy Convocations

In academia, convocations are assemblies or meetings of the members of a college or university. Often held at the beginning of an academic year, convocations typically are formal ceremonies highlighted by an address or speeches by high-ranking officials and/or extramural guests.

UH College of Pharmacy adopted the convocation concept in spring 2011, with Dean Lamar Pritchard presenting the inaugural address. Although many instiutions host a single annual convocation, the college has established a convocation model as a series of events throughout the academic year. 

Convocation topics cover a diverse range of topics and issues, but each is intended to promote the professional development and scholastic enrichment of the student body.
