Fall Convocation featuring Winona LaDuke
Fall Convocation combines both a "welcome-to-the-term" event with a major speaker. It is a time for us to gather as a campus community to celebrate the start of a new academic year and the arrival of enthusiastic students, and to recognize academic achievement. It is our intent annually to choose the Fall Convocation Cohen keynote speaker based on the focus of the year?s thematic programming IN FOCUS.
Internationally acclaimed author, orator, and activist, Winona LaDuke has been selected as the Cohen keynote speaker for the opening Fall Convocation and kick off of 2012-13 Sustainability | IN FOCUS. LaDuke is known for her work on sustainable development, climate change and environmental justice in Native America. A graduate of Harvard and Antioch Universities with advanced degrees in rural economic development, LaDuke has devoted her life to protecting the lands and the life ways of Native communities. She is founder and co-director of Honor the Earth, a national advocacy group encouraging public support and funding for Native environmental groups. With Honor the Earth she works nationally and internationally on issues of climate change, renewable energy, sustainable development, food systems and environmental justice.
