The Spring 2013 Honors Convocation will be conducted on May 16th at 1pm, in the Activity Center. Honors Convocation is an annual celebration at UT Dallas where undergraduate students are recognized for their distinguished academic achievements. Students earning Latin Honors and Major Honors are invited to attend. The tradition of Honors Convocation dedicates time prior to commencement for the academic community to gather and recognize the very best of the University's undergraduates who are prepared to make significant contributions to their professional field or graduate programs.
At this event, students who are graduating with Latin Honors or Major Honors will be recognized and given a UT Dallas honors medallion, which is to be worn during commencement to signify their honors recognition. The ceremony will include recognition of the Undergraduate Alumni Achievement Award and President's Teaching Excellence Award. Audience members will also enjoy a presentation from the keynote speaker, as well as congratulatory words to the students from President Daniel and Provost Wildenthal. Dean Piñeres, deans of the seven UT Dallas schools, and several of the University's most decorated faculty will join students in this celebration. Students who are invited to participate in this tradition are also encouraged to invite family, friends, and faculty who inspired or mentored them during their academic career at UT Dallas to attend.
Honors graduates who do not attend Honors Convocation, may pick up their medallion at commencement. Only students graduating in the spring and summer will be provided a medallion at the Honors Convocation ceremony. Students who graduated in fall should bring the honors medallion they were provided for fall commencement.
