CORE 500 Convocation
Content: Convocation is the opportunity for the Graduate School community to come together across disciplines to honor the collective work we do. Convocation integrates students into the larger Lewis Clark community, and makes cross-disciplinary connections. In service of these goals, students and faculty will share reflections about the role of creativity, compassion, and commitment in their respective professions and engage in small group discussions using a collection of common readings as catalysts.
