Join us for Knox College’s 175th Convocation in a new auditorium at One Spadina Crescent. This auditorium is part of the historic building that was Knox’s home (1875–1915); the building is now the University of Toronto’s John H. Daniels Faculty of Architecture, Landscape, and Design.

The Rev. Dr. Luke Powery, a leader in the theological study of the art of preaching, will give the Convocation Address, entitled “Dreamers.” He is dean of Duke University Chapel and associate professor of homiletics at Duke Divinity School in Durham, North Carolina.
