Reinhardt's best student minds and talent convene every spring for the University's annual *Robert L. Driscoll Convocation of Artists & Scholars or COAS. The week boasts music recitals, creative writing readings, a student research conference, a student-teacher portfolio exhibit, student art and science exhibits, internship presentations and a leadership conference. The public is welcome and encouraged to attend this unique scholarly event.
*In June 2013, the convocation name was changed to the Robert L. Driscoll Convocation of Artists & Scholars in memory of the late Driscoll, Reinhardt's former vice president of academic affairs.
Showcasing Student Achievements
"The Convocation of Artists & Scholars is a celebration of the artistic and scholarly achievements of our students," says Dr. Wayne Glowka, dean of arts and humanities. "We want to show what makes Reinhardt different as a university of its smaller size-the ability to, in one large-scale event, showcase our high achieving students as models for emulation."
