Opening Convocation


Shove Chapel
1010 N. Nevada Ave. (map)


Colorado College will welcome the Class of 2016, its most diverse and selective class, at Opening Convocation at 9 a.m. Monday, Sept. 3 in Shove Memorial Chapel. 

Samuel Taylor, director of the Carnegie Museum of Natural History in Pittsburgh and a 1973 graduate of Colorado College, will deliver the keynote address, titled “Coloring Outside the Lines: Pursuing an Interdisciplinary Life.” Taylor’s address is part of Colorado College’s new “First Mondays” program, a campus-wide forum that creates opportunities for the whole community to gather. In addition to Taylor, Harlene Hayne, a leading researcher in childhood memory and professor and vice-chancellor at Otago University in New Zealand, and Jim Lewis, a dramaturge, writer, librettist and multiple Tony Award-nominee, will receive honorary degrees at the ceremony.
