Each year one of Chapman’s distinguished faculty members shares their thoughts and reflections on the aims of education during the Convocation ceremony. This annual tradition commenced in 1994 with an address by Chapman President James L. Doti. The speeches have covered a variety of topics over the years. Some share personal stories and astute wisdom while others invoke great educators of the past, but all of them convey unbounded joy at the prospect of discovering and guiding the promise that each new class of students holds at their fingertips.

This year Wilkinson College is proud to announce that our very own Dr. Lori Cox Han (Political Science) will be giving the address for Opening Convocation 2019. This event will take place on Tuesday, August 20 at 7 p.m. on Wilson Field.

Attention Faculty!
IF ATTENDING, PLEASE ARRIVE AT BALDWIN PAVILION AT 6:30PM IN FULL REGALIA.
