Please join us on Tuesday, September 29th at 4:00pm PST for our virtual program at convocation.ucsd.edu.

The 2020 New Student Welcome Convocation marks the formal entrance of our incoming students into UC San Diego's scholarly community. As a bookend to Commencement, Convocation provides an opportunity for our newest Tritons to hear from campus leaders and engage with faculty at the start of their collegiate journey. 2020 celebrates the 15th year of this important campus tradition and will be held in a virtual format. 

This program is open to all first year undergraduate students, transfer students, and incoming graduate students. We will have the opportunity to hear from the Chancellor, Executive Vice Chancellor, as well as your student government president to celebrate the start of your academic journey. This year's program will feature a round table conversation with our esteemed faculty. This student-moderated conversation will center around challenges that face our world and how UC San Diego's faculty take a unique, interdisciplinary approach to understanding these problems to forge a path towards change.
