Fall Convocation 2014

The UVa-Wise fall convocation is a joyous, important celebration where we welcome new students, reconnect with friends and colleagues, and launch another academic year. Just as it does at commencement, the faculty wear regalia to mark the event’s significance as we celebrate our commitment to engaged learning while living and working in a community of mutual respect, integrity, stewardship and excellence.
