The University of North Florida's 48th Annual Convocation is a celebration of the accomplishments of many of our colleagues and friends. It is an opportunity to hear remarks from President Szymanski as well as a time to recognize the achievements of our faculty in the areas of International Service, International Leadership, Teaching, Scholarship, Service, and Advising. Another highlight of this program is the honoring of UNF's 42nd Distinguished Professor, David Jaffee.
