Oakland, CA–September 28, 2018
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 Dr. Susan Stryker, award-winning scholar and filmmaker. Dr. Stryker's historical research, theoretical writing, and creative works have shaped the cultural conversation on transgender topics since the early 1990s, and she has been executive director of the GLBT Historical Society in San Francisco and director of the Institute of LGBT Studies at the University of Arizona.
