Convocation 2017
Sociology professor Keith Farrington gives the 2017 convocation address.

Whitman College's annual Convocation ceremony is a calling together of everyone on campus —students, parents, faculty and staff — to mark the beginning of the next academic cycle, and to welcome the incoming class of first-year students into our community.

Convocation is typically held on the Friday before classes begin. For Fall 2020, Convocation was presented virtually, with an address by Associate Professor of History Brian Dott.
