Convocation postponed until Sept. 1

The Center for Disease Control reminds us that if people are vaccinated and wear masks, they can avoid serious infection from new variants of COVID-19. To assist the OLLU community in achieving a healthy start, OLLU is postponing Convocation until Sept. 1.

More details will be forthcoming, but Convocation will follow OLLU’s annual Spirit Day Mass. Weather permitting, all activities will be held outdoors. This will allow everyone to gather in person and start off the year by rebuilding relationships that were altered by communicating through computer screens.

At the same time, there will be no changes to the Provost Professional Development Days schedule and the State of Blue Nation Convocation event for welcoming new students. All are encouraged to attend in person to greet both old and new colleagues. Mask rules remain in place.

Faculty and staff who plan to attend Development Days in person should RSVP to the Office of Academic Affairs to ensure that officials have enough lunches to feed all attendees.
