Fall 2020 & summer 2021 convocation ceremonies

Because it is still not possible to host a face-to-face fall convocation in a safe and healthy way, the Convocation Oversight Committee, and the Events and Ceremonies team are actively working on plans for a UFV convocation in June 2021 — be it virtual or in person. Our team will work to give students, faculty, and staff a fulsome and memorable experience in June.

Thank you for your understanding and your willingness to adapt to the evolving pandemic environment with regard to convocation.

We look forward to celebrating with our community when we can do so without reservation and without risk to the health and safety of all involved.

In the meantime, check out how UFV celebrated 2020 graduates last June.
