Sheridan to celebrate Spring 2022 convocation in person
The college will also welcome back the classes of 2020 and 2021 for a series of in-person graduate celebrations
Sheridan plans to celebrate this spring’s graduating class with a series of in-person ceremonies in June, marking the first time Convocation will be held in-person since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic.
A series of eight spring Convocation ceremonies will take place June 6-9 in a 100,000-square-foot facility at the International Centre, 6900 Airport Rd., Mississauga. Alumni from the past two years will also be recognized with celebratory ceremonies June 9-11 at the International Centre, providing them the opportunity to physically cross the stage in their regalia, surrounded by classmates, professors, family and friends. Masks will be required at all in-person ceremonies.
“Convocation is a significant milestone in the lives of our students and a proud moment for everyone who has supported them in their journey,” says Carol Altilia, Sheridan Provost and Vice President Academic. “We are thrilled that the recent easing of COVID-19 public health measures will once again allow them the opportunity to celebrate this tremendous achievement together in person.”
Sheridan’s last four Convocations have been completely virtual with separate ceremonies for each of the college’s five Faculties and Continuing and Professional Studies that were available for viewing live and on demand. Nearly 20,000 graduates from the past two years have already received a convocation celebratory box that included their degree, diploma or certificate and stole along with other keepsakes and alumni information.
Those who earned honours, high honours or their Board Undergraduate Certificate in Creativity and Creative Problem-Solving also received honour cords to reflect their achievement, students with the best academic record in each program received a Board of Governors Silver Medal, and self-identified Indigenous students received sweetgrass.
