  • UMA Convocation

    September 20, 2019  3:00 pm - 5:00 pm
    UMA Augusta Campus

    2019/20 Academic Theme: Dirigo
    In academia, convocation is the event officially welcoming students to their academic career. It is intended also to convey to students the importance of their educational work and to show the school’s commitment to support students as they pursue their education.

    At UMA, Convocation marks the beginning of a new academic year, and with that, a new academic theme. The UMA Colloquium is pleased to announce that the 2019-2020 academic theme is Dirigo. Dirigo (Latin “I direct” or “I lead”) is the state motto of Maine, as Maine was once the only state to hold its elections in September. Maine celebrates its Bicentennial in 2020. Part of this year’s academic theme includes the adoption of a single theme-related book by a number of classes across the curriculum: When We Were the Kennedys: A Memoir from Mexico, Maine, by Monica Wood.

    Rising Scholars
    Rising Scholars are also recognized at Convocation for both academic achievement and promise. Students are nominated because they have excelled in academics, engaged in the UMA community, or are someone who faculty/staff believe shows great potential and promise as student scholars.

    Please stop by or call the UMA Rockland Center front office if you are in need of a ride to the convocation.
