Chapel and convocation programs focus on the general education’s core themes of Inquiry, Character, Citizenship and Wellness.
The college has a lyceum-type approach to convocation that integrates worship and learning events under the umbrella rubric Vocatio, which has been intentionally designed to engage students in reflection and to challenge their preconceived notions of truth, thereby encouraging them to approach the world with a larger dimension of self, neighbor and God than they may previously have realized. The Vocatio program requires that all students in the traditional program attend ten chapel (worship) services and five convocation (academic) events each semester as a requirement for graduation.
Every Wednesday, students, faculty, staff, and community friends meet together for Chapel. Each service features a speaker and a worship team that brings a relevant message to the campus community.
Convocation events are offered in numerous forums throughout the academic year at the initiative of faculty in the traditional program. The schedule of programs is available through MyBC under the Student tab, and then by clicking on the Student Life icon. Attendance for convocation events is tracked by the Office of Academic Affairs and the schedule of programs is governed by the Faculty’s Student Development Committee.
