2021 Honors Convocation program

Each spring the UNH Manchester community celebrates the outstanding academic achievements of our undergraduate students at the Honors Convocation ceremony. Convocation is the second-largest academic ceremony at the University, next to Commencement, and a time for students and their families to join with University administration, faculty, staff, and their peers to celebrate their academic success.

The program includes recognition of student achievement including Presidential and University Scholars, Academic Program Awards, Writing across the Curriculum/Emerging Writer/Meritorious Writing Awards, Undergraduate Research Conference Awards, and Honors Societies recognition.

WHat is Convocation?

Convocation is a large formal assembly, from the Latin convocare, "to call together". Honors Convocation refers to the formal ceremony held annually when faculty and staff "come together" to recognize and celebrate the academic achievement of our undergraduate students. Family and friends are encouraged to join in honoring your achievements.

Students' names are called for recognition as University Scholars, Presidential Scholars and for academic program awards and honors. You come up to the platform to receive your honor or award from the Provost of the University, the college Dean and the college Associate Dean.
