The College of Education will hold its Fall Convocation for graduating students on Tuesday, December 13, 2011, at 4:00 p.m. in the Peachtree Ballroom at the Westin Peachtree Plaza Hotel (210 Peachtree Street, Atlanta 30303).
While the University Commencements and Hooding Ceremonies on December 14 signify the official conferral of degrees, the College of Education Convocation, a pre-commencement ceremony, is an opportunity for the college to recognize its graduates and celebrate its students’ achievements. We encourage our graduates to participate in both events.
Along with our graduates earning their degree this December, the college will also recognize its August 2011 graduates at this event.
Convocation will feature guest speaker and COE alumnus Sandra Hofmann (B.S. ’74), president and board director of Women in Technology, and CIO-in-residence with the Advanced Technology Development Center at the Georgia Institute of Technology. Ms. Hofmann is also the College of Education’s 2011 Distinguished Alumnus recipient.
