Much of the Convocation tradition derives from medieval English custom, when kings and kings’ courts were closely associated with Oxford University and the church. The ceremony begins with the ceremonial marshal carrying the mace, followed by the faculty, staff, and administration of the university. During the ceremony, the new class is addressed by the Bentley president as well as other members of the Bentley community. At the end, the class leaves as one and walks into their Orientation Program and start their Bentley careers.
Family members are welcome to join us in this Bentley University tradition.
If you missed the ceremony or just want to see it again, we have you covered. Watch Convocation 2016!
Convocation 2017 will be held on August 23rd, 2017 in the tent on the Library quad.
