Pace University cordially invites you to the Eleventh Annual Convocation, which will be held on September 4th, 2018, on both the New York City and Westchester campuses. Convocation (Latin 'calling together', translating the Greek ecclesia) is a group of people formally assembled for a special purpose. First-year students are invited to join the Pace Community for this important ceremony that sets the academic tone for the coming years of your Pace experience. This year’s common reader—which will be discussed by our keynote speakers and woven into the first-year curriculum—will be Behold the Dreamers, by Imbolo Mbue.
