Convocations Calendar Spring 2021

Welcome, everyone! I hope this finds you well. Because of the coronavirus pandemic, we will continue to offer convocations virtually during the spring semester. Registration information will be emailed to campus a few days prior to each scheduled event. In addition, a registration button will be made available on this homepage for those who are not on Berea campus email.

As has been our longtime tradition, convocations will be held on Thursdays*; however, please note that the convocation time slot has shifted from the afternoon to 7:00 p.m. (Eastern). (*Except: Martin Luther King Jr. Convocation on Monday, 18 Jan. 2021)

If you are unable to attend a convocation at the designated time, you can watch a video recording of the event later. Recordings will usually be posted on this homepage early in the week following the event.

In the 2021 spring term, Berea students will not be required to attend convocations and attendance will not affect students’ GPA. However, we’d like to strongly encourage you to attend convocations for the educational experience and cultural enrichment. Some instructors may require students to attend convocations for credit in their courses.

Please stay safe!

Director of Convocations
