The Fall 2022 Academic Convocation is an exciting event that blends our Common Read program with other student learning and engagement opportunities. Winners of the 2022 University Faculty Awards will be recognized, and the event will feature presentations from President Muma, a student speaker and a special keynote address.

The 2022 guest speaker is Kwame Onwuachi, author of the 2022-2023 common read, "Notes from a Young Black Chef."

A book-signing and reception will follow at the Ulrich Museum, 2nd Floor from 10:30 to 11:15 a.m. 

Attend a live cooking session at Shocker Hall Dining where we will cook one of Chef Kwame's recipes from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.! 

Please join this inspirational WSU tradition as we kick off the new semester!
