Addou was forced to leave her native homeland of Algeria, targeted by both Islamic fundamentalist extremists and the repressive military government after using her television talk show to expose abuses to human and civil rights, especially the condemnation of women.

During the convocation, the Jane Weston Chapman Award will be presented to a faculty member and a student. An annual event during Women's History Month, the award is named for the first female graduate of Mount Union College.

The convocation is free and open to the public.
