Convocation

August 27 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Convocation, from the Latin convocare, means “to call together.”

At the start of each academic year, we call together Indiana Tech’s student body, faculty and staff for convocation – a time to celebrate a new beginning and to welcome all our new Warriors to the fold.

As a university, we use this time to rededicate ourselves to our mission of providing learners a professional education; preparing them for active participation, career advancement, and leadership in the global 21st century society; and motivating them toward a life of significance and worth.

To our students, we hope that you draw from this gathering the inspiration, motivation and focus that will lead you to a successful academic year.
