Illinois College Convocation Program

Here is a guideline for all applicants:

Convocations are an integral part of the General Education program and are tied to the mission and vision of the College. Convocations are presentations for the campus community intended to foster "an academic and social environment marked by a pervasive sense of concern for the intellectual, moral, social, aesthetic, and spiritual development" of our students (Illinois College Vision Statement). The number of Convocations required for graduation is 30: four First Year Program Convocations and an additional 26 "General Education Convocations." Students will be expected to complete this requirement by the end of their junior year in order to emphasize the intellectual connections between these Convocations and their General Education courses. 
The Convocation committee strives to bring in special, non-local resources to the campus community to present programs or persons that students might not otherwise have the opportunity to experience, but not to the exclusion of quality programs or presentations from the local IC community
