NJIT's University Convocation is an annual celebration and awards ceremony that marks the start of the academic year recognizing the accomplishments of students, faculty and staff members. In recent years the ceremony has taken place in the Jim Wise Theater, Lubetkin Field, and the Zoom Fleisher Athletic Center. A reception for the honorees is held shortly afterwards.
The ceremony recognizes students, faculty, and staff who have received awards in the past year as well as those faculty members who received promotion or tenure. The following awards are presented yearly:
- The Excellence in Teaching Awards recognize and reward members of the instructional staff for outstanding accomplishments in teaching. The awards are conferred upon teachers who have demonstrated excellence in the classroom, encouraging and guiding students to work at the highest academic level.
- The Master Teacher designation is the most prestigious recognition that the university bestows upon faculty for high-quality teaching.
- Student awards include the Presidential Leadership Award
