Chancellor Mark Pagano encourages you to join him for Convocation, a UW Tacoma tradition that symbolizes the importance of university-community partnerships. Convocation is a traditional event to welcome students to university life.

Students, faculty and supporters will meet at the Grand Staircase for a brief welcome ceremony.  Following the ceremony, there will be a celebration with food, music, t-shirts plus a Community Fair featuring local businesses and non-profits.
