Honors Convocation 2023

May 4, 2023 @ 5:00 PM - 6:00 PM

Please join President Michaele Whelan, Provost Touba Ghadessi and Dean of Students Darnell Parker for the college’s annual celebration of academic accomplishment.

Professor Francisco Fernández de Alba

Departmental and College awards will be presented to students who have distinguished themselves as scholars and academic citizens of Wheaton College.  Senior Class President Caylynn Watson-Fields ’23 will present the Faculty Appreciation Award and Provost Touba Ghadessi will announce the recipient of this year’s endowed honorary chair, Jane E. Ruby Chair in Humanities and Social Sciences.

Professor of Hispanic Studies Francisco Fernández de Alba will deliver the keynote address titled “On the Lasting Value of a Good Book”.

The lineup for the procession begins promptly at 4:45 p.m.  College Marshals Stephanie Daniels and Russell Williams will line up the faculty in front of Knapton Hall and students in front of the Chapel. (Inclement weather: Faculty will line up in the lower level of the Chapel and students will line up in Balfour-Hood).

Join us for a campus BBQ on the Dimple immediately following the ceremony.  The event is open to the public but seating is limited and on a first-come, first-served basis.  The recording of the ceremony and the official program will be available online shortly after the event. We hope you can join us for this special academic tradition.
