The Honors Day Convocation was established in 1980 as a celebration of academic excellence. The Convocation recognizes distinguished undergraduates from all disciplines, outstanding members of the various honor societies and honors students to be graduated with General Honors in May or Summer 2018.

It is by invitation that students are invited to participate in the Convocation. The various colleges, schools, departments, and academic honor societies select their most outstanding graduating senior and the General Honors Program acknowledges students who have fulfilled the requirements to be graduated with General Honors. The invitation to participate will be sent in late March.

Provost Jeffrey L. Duerk, Dean of Undergraduate Education, William Scott Green, along with the Deans of each college and school present awards to students.

Invitations and instructions for the Convocation will be emailed in early April 2018 to students who are to be honored. Students must RSVP to the General Honors Office by the deadline provided in the invitation to reserve their seats in the BankUnited Center.

Invitations to faculty who plan to process will be emailed in March 2018. Faculty must RSVP to the General Honors Program office by the deadline provided in the invitation to reserve their seat on stage.
