Convocation

The annual Convocation is a formal ceremony that welcomes and celebrates new students and their families as members of the Roger Williams University community.

Faculty and administrators process in full academic regalia and new students and their families are greeted by leaders from the University community. Students will take the Academic Integrity Pledge in the presence of family members, fellow students and the University staff and faculty.
