Howard University’s Opening Convocation 2021

In an effort to maintain the University’s health and safety protocols, this year’s Opening Convocation will be available for livestream. We invite the entire community to view the livestream according to your academic schedule’s availability. The ceremony will be broadcast Friday, September 17 at 11 a.m. EST.

Opening Convocation is a time-honored tradition to welcome the Class of 2025 and acknowledge recent achievements of Howard University. While our 154th Opening Convocation will look quite different than any that we’ve hosted in previous years, it is more important than ever that we come together as a community.
