PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT/SHARE WITH STUDENTS: Save the Date – 2016 New Student Convocation


We hope you are already looking forward to welcoming our new incoming students to campus in August. In order to promote the success and first year experience of the Class of 2020, we are planning the eleventh annual UIC Convocation to kick-off the 2016-2017 academic year. The UIC Convocation marks the official beginning of our new students’ entry into our academic community. Please save the date below on your calendar.

The schedule is as follows:

Sunday, August 21, 2016
3:00 p.m.
UIC Pavilion

All new students, their families, as well as university faculty and staff are invited to attend. The UIC Convocation will be followed immediately by the Chancellor’s New Student Welcome Picnic during which new students and their families will join us for food, games, prizes, entertainment, and an opportunity to reconnect with their summer orientation leader, faculty, and academic college staff.
