Brandon University to celebrate Convocation with three ceremonies across two days

May 27, 2019

Brandon University’s Annual Convocation will span three ceremonies over two days this year, as more students continue to graduate, and more friends and family come to cheer them on. This expands Convocation from the recent tradition of having two ceremonies in one day.

Nearly 590 students will graduate during Convocation, slightly more than last year and Brandon University’s largest graduating class since 2013. More than 80 per cent of graduates have indicated they will attend their Convocation ceremonies.

This year’s Convocation ceremonies will also include award presentations and the official Presidential Installation. Convocation takes place Thursday, May 30 and Friday, May 31, 2019.

Thursday’s ceremony will begin at 2 p.m., and will feature the Presidential Installation as well as conferral of degrees for the Faculty of Education, including B.A./B.Ed. integrated degrees. The Friday morning ceremony will begin at 10 a.m. and will feature the conferral of degrees for the Faculty of Science and the Faculty of Health Studies. The Friday afternoon ceremony will follow, at 2 p.m., and will feature the conferral of degrees for Faculty of Arts and the School of Music, including B.Mus./B.Ed. concurrent degrees.

Everyone is welcome to attend any or all of the ceremonies, as Convocation is a community celebration. Convocation is held at the BU Healthy Living Centre, on Louise Avenue at 20th Street. There is no charge to attend.
