The annual matriculation convocation is the formal start to the new academic year. President Todd Parnell will speak about his winter 2010 trip to Hem Sheela, Drury’s sister school in India, founded by Drs. Protima and Rabindra Roy. He will share how the Roys’ Tribal School in Khatguria is building a better future for local children and creating a model of engaged learning for the Drury community.
Chaplain Peter Browning, Dean of Students Tijuana Julian, Professor Mark Wood, and Vice President of Alumni & Development Krystal McCulloch will join him in what has become a dynamic, thought provoking—and often humorous—start to the convocation series.
