Information for Faculty & Staff

The 2020 and 2021 convocation ceremonies will be taking place at the Canalta Centre at 9:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. on Friday, June 11, 2021.

Attending Convocation (Faculty members)

All faculty members who have confirmed their attendance for convocation are asked to meet in the southeast end of the Canalta Centre by 8:45 a.m. (2020 ceremony) and 12:45 p.m. (2021 ceremony); pinning assistance will be available. Faculty will line up for the grand march at 9:15 a.m. (2020 ceremony) and 1:15 p.m. (2021 ceremony).


Faculty gowns will be available for pick-up on June 10, 2021 from 9 a.m. - 6 p.m. and June 11, 2021 from 8 a.m. - 9 p.m. in the shipping/receiving entrance at the southeast end of the Canalta Centre. Gowns must be returned to the bins that will be set up at the Canalta Centre by 5 p.m. on June 11, 2021. 

All faculty gowns will be ordered directly through Gaspard. Although gown orders are processed exactly as received, the supplier often has to send substitutions based on availability. If you wish to purchase your own regalia to avoid the possibility of a substitution, this can also be done on the Gaspard website. All questions and concerns can be sent directly to Gaspard.

Dress Guidelines
The convocation gowns are warm, so consider the weather and wear appropriate clothing the day of your ceremony. The gowns typically reach below your knees so business dress and comfortable shoes are suggested.
