2013 Honors Convocation

April 7, 2013

Indiana University President Michael A. McRobbie, along with Provost and Executive Vice President Lauren Robel, presided over the 2013 Bloomington Honors Convocation Sunday, April 7 in the IU Auditorium. They saluted IU Bloomington Founders Scholars, high-achieving students who have earned cumulative GPAs of 3.8 or higher, and other outstanding undergraduates who have distinguished themselves in scholarship, leadership and service.

The convocation was part of activities surrounding the annual celebration of IU's beginnings in 1820. In honor of the university's founding, the Founders Scholar designation was introduced in 2009 to recognize sustained academic excellence. To earn the Founders Scholar designation, an undergraduate, degree-seeking student must have earned a cumulative grade point average of 3.8 or above by the end of the fall term immediately preceding the honors convocation.

Approximately 3,600 Bloomington undergraduates are 2013 Founders Scholars. They received a letter of commendation from the president and provost in the early spring, and they and their families are invited to the IU Bloomington convocation.
