Convocation Week

Convocation week events  

UMass Chan Medical School celebrates the beginning of each academic year by coming together as a campus community to reflect on our shared values and our vocation as caregivers, researchers, teachers, students and community members. Convocation and related events are traditionally scheduled for the third week in September.

Convocation is characterized by a celebration of faculty. Highlights of the ceremony include recognition of newly tenured and recently promoted faculty and the announcement of the recipients of the Chancellor's Medals for distinguished teaching, distinguished scholarship, distinguished service and distinguished clinical excellence. These recognitions are announced in the chancellor’s keynote address, which also highlights the accomplishments of the previous year and the expectations for the coming year.
