Mills College Convocation 2017

Oakland, CA—September 15, 2017

A fall tradition at Mills, Convocation marks the formal beginning of the new academic year. Our community gathers to celebrate the graduating class, honor the academic achievements of students and faculty who are receiving special awards, and recognize alumnae who have returned to campus for Reunion.

This year's Convocation speaker is Ashara Ekundayo, co-founder of Impact Hub Oakland, an innovation incubator and co-working community committed to the social, cultural, economic and political liberation of people of color, women and girls, and the LGBTQ community.

President Elizabeth L. Hillman will also discuss how Mills is leading California private colleges by taking bold steps to improve college affordability.
