The Virginia Intermont Convocation Series is part of our mission to emphasize an educational experience that extends beyond classroom facts and theories. The series helps to further our belief that we should challenge students and ourselves, not just intellectually, but spiritually and personally as well.These events are open to the public and the campus community. Admission is free for VI students, faculty and staff. At the conclusion of the event, students should fill out a convocation card and turn it in to a Convocation staff member to receive convocation credit.
