Convocation 2014

Convocation is a ceremony that celebrates the beginning of the academic year and welcomes our new students to campus.

This year's keynote speaker is Kara Miller, host and executive editor of “Innovation Hub,” Public Radio International’s weekly radio show about technology and innovation. She also contributes to “The Takeaway,” a national radio program hosted by John Hockenberry, WGBH’s “Morning Edition,” and “Greater Boston,” which airs on Boston’s PBS station.

Miller will discuss The Righteous Mind: Why Good People are Divided by Politics and Religion by Jonathan Haidt—the book selected for first-year students' summer reading and fall discussion.
