Watch Live Webcast of Opening Convocation
Duke Divinity School will hold its 87th Opening Convocation Service, the first worship service of the 2013-14 academic year for students, faculty, and staff, on Aug. 27 from 11:25 a.m. until 12:30 p.m. in Duke Chapel.
The convocation service, which is highlighted by an academic procession of the faculty and selected senior administrative staff, also includes a blessing of new faculty and staff, and a welcoming to the entering class of students.
Dean Richard B. Hays will preach at the convocation service. His homily, "Now I Have Put My Words in Your Mouth,” will be based on Biblical scripture from Jeremiah 1:4-10.
