Invite you to



Barnard’s academic tradition celebrating the start of the academic year.


Tuesday, Sept. 14, 2021

4:30 p.m.


This year we are especially eager to celebrate the start of the academic year with the annual Convocation ceremony, and we are balancing our plans for Convocation with the necessary health and safety measures to keep our community safe in light of the pandemic. To that end, the Convocation ceremony will be held at Riverside Church with limited in-person attendance, and the ceremony will also be live-streamed as a virtual event. First-year and sophomore students will be invited to attend the ceremony in-person at Riverside Church, while juniors and seniors will be invited to join the ceremony virtually at one of our outdoor locations on campus. Faculty and staff are welcome to attend the ceremony in-person or to view the livestream. Faculty are invited to don regalia and form the traditional line outside Riverside Church to greet the students as they exit the ceremony. All members of the Barnard community are invited to an outdoor celebration after the ceremony.


Please RSVP
