Information for Spring 2020 Graduates

Update for Spring Graduates - July 15, 2020

Dalhousie University will celebrate Convocation with our graduates virtually this fall, rather than in-person as we have done in previous years. 

While it was our hope to extend an invitation for you to join us at Convocation this fall, our top priority is your health and well-being as well as the health and well-being of your family and loved ones. Though we don’t fully know what public health restrictions will be required in the coming months, we do not expect to be able to safely host a gathering the size of a Convocation ceremony (1,500-2000 people), and we also expect continued travel restrictions that would limit the ability of you and your family to take part. For these reasons, we have decided not to hold in-person Convocation ceremonies this fall.

We will keep connected to ensure you have information about future ceremonies (hopefully Spring or Fall 2021), and we can’t wait invite you back and see you cross the stage in front of your supporters.
