Fall 2012 marked the fourth annual Cornish Convocation, as students gathered for the opening of the academic year at Seattle Unity Church, to greet one another and re-affirm their mutual respect as artists.

The gathering also marked the second annual signing of the Book of Commitment, a tradition that was begun in 2011 at the start of Cornish President Dr. Nancy Uscher’s inaugural year. The book was passed across the aisles, for students, staff, and professors to sign their name to this statement of commitment to the Cornish community:

“I will maintain respect for the dignity and integrity of each person.
I will safeguard the practice of free and open expression.
I will accept personal accountability for my decisions and actions.”

The first graduating class to attend all four Convocations will commence this Spring in 2013. As every year, the joy of seeing familiar faces after the Summer, and the anticipation of another year’s art creation filled the room. 2012-2013 promises to be a good one!
