Convocation at Memorial
Memorial University holds convocation ceremonies to confer degrees in the spring and fall of the year in St. John's and Corner Brook. The next sessions of convocation will take place:
- Corner Brook—Friday, Oct. 3 2014, at the Arts and Culture Centre
- St. John's— Friday, Oct. 17, 2014, at the Arts and Culture Centre
Since 1950, when Memorial held its first convocation, thousands of students and more than 500 honorary graduates have crossed the stage to receive their degrees from our chancellors. Our convocation—defined as a gathering of the university community—has grown from the practices and traditions of older universities, such as the University of Oxford. Today's convocations are a distinctly Memorial University experience for all who attend, be they distinguished guests or faculty, honorary graduates or our graduating students who are, as they should be, the focus of the events.
