Honors Convocation

Each year, Wittenberg celebrates the achievements of students and faculty members at its annual Honors Convocation in historic, picturesque Weaver Chapel.

The faculty commemorate the occasion in full academic regalia as the University recognizes high achievement of students and faculty members in academic and co-curricular activities.

Honors Convocation 2021 took place at 4:15 p.m. Friday, April 9, utilizing a hybrid format with a small gathering of students, faculty and staff present in Weaver Chapel, along with simultaneous streaming through Facebook Live (link below) to allow everyone else to watch online.
