SPIA Undergraduate Convocation – 1:30 PM Ceremony
1:30 PM - 3:00 PM
Hodgson Concert Hall – Performing Arts Center

The Convocation of the School of Public and International Affairs celebrates our candidates for graduation, our alumni, faculty and staff, and the entire SPIA Community.

2023 SPIA Convocation will be held Friday, May 12th at Hugh Hodgson Concert Hall in the UGA Performing Arts Center.

Given the size of our venue & our numbers of candidates, SPIA will host two in-person ceremonies at 11:00 am & 1:30 pm. Aside from the keynote address, both ceremonies offer the same experience and candidates will attend only one. Selection into the ceremonies will be first-come, first-served via RSVP. The RSVP form will be available in Spring 2023.

We are pleased to welcome two UGA graduates back to campus to deliver our Convocation Addresses:

  • 11:00 a.m.  |  Reta Jo Lewis, President and Chair of the Board of Directors, Export-Import Bank of the United States
  • 1:30 p.m.  |  Kiran Ahuja, Director of the U.S. Office of Personnel Management

SPIA Convocation will be live-streamed via the SPIA YouTube page for those friends and family who are not able to join us in person.

Questions? Email [email protected] or Mr. Paul Welch at [email protected].

More information can be found on the SPIA Undergraduate Convocation page.
